    Man and woman are the part of

    Hi,

    Can you please point out my mistakes in the following paragraph?

    Man and woman are the part of the same society. In fact they together make the society. Man and woman are like the two wheels of the same vehicle. Unless there is a balance between them, no society can be valuable and they canít achieve the goal of
    their life.

    Re: Man and woman are the part of

    Each time you've used "man and woman", "men and women" would be better.
    Remove "the" from between "are" and "part" in your first sentence.
    You need a comma after "In fact".
    Swap "they" and "together".
    I don't know what your final sentence means. Can you try to explain it in a different way?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Perhaps:

    Men and women together make up society. They are like the two wheels of a bicycle. A bike needs both wheels in order to function.

    @emsr2d2

    Please tell me when I should not use 'man and woman' to avoid making a mistake next time. I have seen some examples of 'man' in Cambridge dictionaries.

    Re: Man and woman are the part of

    "Man" is sometimes used to refer to the entire human race. However, "man and woman" is not used in the same way. In your context, I would use "men and women" to mean "All men and women" or "All people".

    Men and women have some things in common, but they are different in some important ways.

    There are ways in which men and women are the same and ways in which they are different.

    Re: Man and woman are the part of

    Should I use "a" after removing "the"?
    Please check it now.

    Men and women are a part of the same society. In fact, they together make up the society. Men and women are like the two wheels of the same vehicle. Unless there is a balance between them, no society can be valuable and people can’t achieve the goal of their lives.

    No. I simply said "Omit 'the'". If I had meant for you to replace it with "a", I would have said so.

    Men and women are a part of the same society. In fact, together they together make up the society. Men and women are like the two wheels of the same vehicle. a bicycle. Unless there is a balance between them, no society can't be valuable and people canít achieve the goal of their lives their life goals.
    See above. I've left the general style of your sentences even though they're not particularly natural. If you want to specify a vehicle with two wheels, then just say that it's a bicycle. If you say "vehicle", most people think of a car, which has four wheels. Talking about only two of the wheels will leave people wondering what the other two wheels are!

    I'm not sure what you mean about "society" being "valuable".

    Go back and read post #3 again. Tarheel gave you a neat and concise version of your piece.
