    Re: complete VS completed

    Can you see where 'of' needs to be added to make them both correct?

    Re: complete VS completed

    They will both be correct if you add the word 'of' in the right place.

    See above. Your second sentence would be better as "Are they both correct?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: complete VS completed

    I would punctuate that differently.

    I mean, which one is correct?
