    Not a teacher

    Welcome to UsingEnglish.

    First of all, you should read rules, because your post looks like a mess.(I'm sorry for that)/
    You try to answer first. What do you think is a correct option?

    (my eyes hurt)

    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.

    abdoayman, please try again.

    Avoid non-standard words like 'Guyz'.
    Use only single punctuation marks.
    Don't use non-standard punctuation marks.
    Always capitalise 'I'.

    Re: I need just an answer to that

    I would choose "(a) damages". In that use, this word refers to money that is claimed for damage that was caused by the fire.

    Re: I need just an answer to that

    There is no need to write a new post to say Thank you. Simply click the Thank button on any posts you find helpful. It means that we don't have to open the thread again to read your new post and then find that it doesn't include any new information or an additional question. It saves everybody's time.

    Additionally, you don't know MikeNewYork well enough to call him 'bro'.
