    Only one of the five suspects... admitted his involvement in this terror act.

    Only one of the five suspects caught by the police after the bombing admitted his involvement in this terror act. (from my teacher's handout)
    Is this sentence correct? Do you say "terror act" in English? Thanks!

    No, it's not natural. I'd write this act of terrorism.
    I am not a teacher.

    Or "terrorist act".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
