    Re: Need Correct answers

    Please don't put so many questions in one thread. As you can see, your post has fallen down the page because, I imagine, lots of people have opened it, seen how long it is and closed it again.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Need Correct answers

    You seem to have discovered a way of getting us to do your homework: you take a guess at the answer and expect us to put right the wrong guesses.

    I for one am not falling for it.

    Re: Need Correct answers

    I suspect the same thing. In future, vijayalwayssmiles, wait until you have got your homework back from your teacher - it is his/her job to correct your work. If there are any corrections you don't understand, you can post them here and we'll try to explain.
