    There are errors in these two sentences, and not only in the bits in bold.

    Is it your homework, by any chance?

    Do you understand why "was you" and "you was" are wrong?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
