    Volume at it's highest

    If someone over asks me over the phone to raise the volume of my phone. So can I say "Volume is already at its highest" or do I need to say? "It's already full".

    Re: Volume at it's highest

    No, not "full." It's "up all the way." Or, as you said "at its highest."

    Re: Volume at it's highest

    Your initial sentence is incorrect. Over the what? You also need "the" before "volume"

    Re: Volume at it's highest

    Your "If" clause is not a complete sentence (again). Your entire post should read "If someone asks me over the (missing word) to raise the volume of my phone, can I say "Volume is already at its highest" or do I need to say "It's already full"?

    Note the construction and note the correct placement of the question mark. Only one question mark was required for your entire post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Volume at it's highest

    It should be: Could you please tell me what my mistakes are?

    Re: Volume at it's highest

    In the title, you use it's, when it should be its, and Mike has already told you to put the before volume.

    Re: Volume at it's highest

    Tufguy, you seem to have a basic problem with understanding what a complete sentence is. Do you understand why "What my mistakes are" is not a complete sentence nor is it a question.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Volume at it's highest

    So, it should be "The volume is already at its highest".
