See my corrections and, where appropriate, additional comments on each one.I understand that I still make many mistakes regarding punctuation and grammar. Here are a few sentences I have written as an exercise. Would you please correct my mistakes?
1. I have bought a new camera that
makestakes sharp, clear pictures.
Even though it's the photographer who actually takes the picture, we actually say that a camera takes pictures too.
2. Yesterday, I met an old widower whose wife had died recently, and I felt
apity for him.
A man whose wife has died is called a "widower". A widow is a woman whose husband is dead. We "feel pity", not "feel a pity".
3. The old factory, which had been closed for decades, has been turned into flats and shops.
4. John felt tired all
themorning and waited eagerly for the bell to sound at the end of the shift (no comma here) so that he could return to his flat and his bed.
5. Anna stood on the hill and watched the
flockmurder of crows swooping over the field, which his father had sowed in the morning.
The collective term for crows is a "murder".
6. The party members
hashave chosen a new leader, a man whose political career was full of scandals and controversies.
7. Peter felt there was nothing to complain about about his new job, as long as his pay was good and on time.
Although the repetition of "about" seems awkward, it's correct. I don't know what you mean at the end. Do you mean he is happy as long as he is paid "on time", meaning that his salary goes into his bank account on the right day?
8. It took Bob months to
understandrealise that his wife had been cheating on him with a postman, who would smile at him whenever they met in the street.
There is a difference between realising something and understanding it.
9. They had spent a few days in an old hotel,
whosethe walls of which were covered with pictures and autographs of its celebrity guests.
10. The narrow road wound
its wayup the hill, on whosetop of which stood a guest-house and a restaurant.
