    - Even though the spring term has barely started, I am all ready looking forward to spring break.
    **** Answer sheet sayes spring, but i think all ready is wrong and shoulb be changed to allready.

    - Karen attributed the failure of her marrigae to her husband's inability to accept her change from mother to a businesswoman.

    - Karen attributed the failure of her marrigae marriage to her husband's inability to accept her change from mother to a businesswoman.

    None of the three underlined words is incorrect.

    They have chosen from a test. The answer sheet is exits and says that in the first one "spring" and in the second one "to" after marriage are wrong and must be charged.

    What did you mean by the two parts I have underlined and marked in red?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Grammar & writing, mistake word in a sentence

    I imagine they are typos. The first should be 'exists', the second 'changed'.

    "The answer sheet exists ...' is not natural. I'd probably say "I have a copy of the answer sheet ...'
