    Hi, Anmar!

    Where are those lines from? Are they homework questions you got wrong?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I hope the instructions didn't actually use "ect" at the end. It's "etc".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
