    After being abandoned

    Please would you correct these three sentences.

    1. After being abandoned by his son and daughter, the old man cut them off his will.
    2. The only power that kept the sick man alive was his strong will, which he had since his childhood.
    3. She broke up with her boyfriends at will, leaving them all sad and disappointed.

    Re: After being abandoned

    Why do you think they need correcting?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: After being abandoned

    I think they are correct, but I would like to know what a teacher has to say, to be absolutely sure that these exemples are correct.

    Re: After being abandoned

    1. ... cut them out of his will.
    2. ... which he had had.
    3. Grammatically it's OK but I find "at will" somewhat unnatural and there is no need for "all" after "them".
