    "He went in to milk a cow. He came out with a bucket full of milk. He had taken out a lot of milk."

    Please check.

    Re: He went in to Milk a Cow.

    Why is "milk" capitalized? What do you mean by "had taken out"? Taken out from where?

    Re: He went in to Milk a Cow.

    In addition to "milk", why is "cow" capitalised?

    Is a bucket a lot of milk?

    Re: He went in to Milk a Cow.

    It depends on the size of the cow. And the size of the bucket.

    Re: He went in to Milk a Cow.

    And it will all be relative to the size of whoever "he" is.

    You don't have to do your corrections. I corrected it for you.

    Re: He went in to Milk a Cow.

    We don't "take out" milk from a cow's udder. We just get it.

    Now that you know that "cow" and "milk" shouldn't be capitalised and that "take out" isn't correct, have another try at the whole thing.
