    Re: Sometimes your bones break even if you don't fall from a high height.

    Sorry, but this one is just silly. Lots of things other than a fall from a great height can cause broken bones. Try writing a sentence about possible causes of broken bones.

    It wasn't about bones. I wanted to know about "High or low height". Can we use these words like this?

    A cup can break on a hard floor even if not dropped from a great height.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    How about using You don't have to as a start.

    Then try to come up with sentences in which you might actually want to use the words.

    Re: Sometimes your bones break even if you don't fall from a high height.

    If a person falls from their bed they fall from a very low height.

    You do not need to fall from a "great" or "high" height in order to get hurt.

    You can get hurt even if you fall from a normal height.

    Re: Sometimes your bones break even if you don't fall from a high height.

    There is no such thing as a "normal height". Stick with "You do not need to fall from a great height to get hurt" - that implies all the other information.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
