    Please note that on this forum proper capitalization and punctuation is a must and such abbreviations as 'pls' are unacceptable.

    Re: subject verb agreement

    Subject-verb agreement is not a problem here. "He told..." is correct. As you are reporting someone else's statement, you could say that "he told me he didn't (or doesn't) smoke or drink in public places."

    Are there some any errors in this sentence? pls Please tell me.
    Please see my amendments to your post above in red. Remember to follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
