I have a confusion about using age in a sentence.
Which one is the correct one and why?
I almost tripped over a six year old boy.
I almost tripped over a six-year-old boy.
I almost tripped over a six years old boy.
I almost tripped over a six-years-old boy.
Thank you for your help.
When can we use #4? Is it correct?
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
I've seen #3 many times. Is it correct too?
You'll probably see all three incorrect versions used, but the second is correct.
