    Question correct

    Find the mistake in each of the following sentences :

    1- He applied for three universities and was accepted by all.
    2- The space station will be orbiting around the earth.
    3- Look at the beautiful kitten ! I buy it for Alex for his birthday.
    4- Can you wait until 6.00 because I had lessons until then ?

    My opinion :
    1- I can't find a solution for it.
    2- I think it should be " The space station will be orbiting the earth."
    3- "Look at the beautiful kitten ! I am going to buy it for Alex for his birthday."
    4- "Can you wait until 6.00 because I has lessons until then ?"

    Re: correct

    Is this a test which will be marked?

    I can assure you there is an error in sentence 1.
    There is another error in sentence 3.
    You've identified the right error in sentence 4 but your correction is incorrect.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I didn't know that.
    I've just learned something new. Thank you.

    I advise you to look up the word 'apply' in a dictionary and read the examples, but I am not a teacher.
