    Group dispersed.

    "There is a group of six people. Who are very good friends but their group disperses because of one person who wants to leave the group because of some diffrences with the group leader".

    Please check these sentences.

    "Their group dispersed because of that guy. Who left group."

    "He destroyed that group."

    "He made them disperes or scatter."

    "He provoked everyone against the group leader and made them leave the group."

    Re: Group dispersed.

    '... broke up' is a more natural choice than 'disperses'.

    We were a group of six people. We were good friends, but the group broke up because of one person who wanted to leave the group because of some differences with the leader.

    "There is a group of six people. Who are very good friends but their group breaks up because of one person who wants to leave the group."



    "Their group broke up because of that guy. Who left group."

    "He broke up that group."

    "He made them disperes or scatter." (This one cannot be changed).

    "He provoked everyone against the group leader and made them leave the group." (This one also).

    Are these correct now? Are the last two sentences correct?

    Re: Group dispersed.

    Tufguy, "break up" does not mean the same thing as "disperse". Perhaps:

    That group broke up because of that guy who turned everybody against the group leader.

    Tufguy, in both your posts, you erroneously split one sentence into two, by putting a full stop after "people" and starting a new sentence with "Who". That's incorrect. See the correct version above. It would be better as "There a six people who are very good friends ..."
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    But "scatter" or "disperse" can be used as well, right? Although "break up" is a better choice. What about my first two sentences?

    You have been told that 'disperse is not the ideal verb in your sentences.

    "He destroyed that group."
    That is possible.

    "He made them disperes or scatter."
    NO
    "He provoked everyone against the group leader and made them leave the group."
    'Turned' would be a better word than 'provoked'.
