    Ponds are noted for

    In this test, there is an error I'm supposed to find. But I doubt one of these options: 1. 'varied' can be replaced with 'varying'. 2. 'life' can be replaced with 'lives'.

    Ponds are noted for their rich and varied types of plant and animal life, all maintain in a delicate ecological balance.

    Re: Ponds are noted for

    Sorry, neither of those is the error.

    Try again.

    Re: Ponds are noted for

    Look at the part after the comma.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Ponds are noted for

    Balance mustn't be countable here. Is that it? 'a' is extra.

    Re: Ponds are noted for

    Both "a" and "balance" are correct. Look at the second and third words of the second clause.

    I finally couldn't find the error in here.
    What's the problem with maintain in? Beats me.

    Re: Ponds are noted for

    It should be 'maintained'.
