    Which do you think is wrong and why? We don't give out answers here; we will discuss them, but you have to make the first move.

    Welcome to UsingEnglish.com, Abubahjat!

    Please note that a better title would have been 'I turned in my homework without looking over it, so I ended up with a bad grade.'

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    It seems to me to be a question about phrasal verbs, and the choices should be:
    A. turned in
    B. looking over
    C. ended up
    And the question should be "Which underlined phrase is wrong and why?" (And the phrases should be underlined).
    Otherwise, there's no obvious answer.

    It's a shame they didn't ask about an error with the spacing around punctuation. That would have been easy to find.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
