    If I like your work I will increase your salary by twice.

    1) If I like your work, I will increase your salary by twice.

    2) If I like your work, I will increase your salary by hundred dollars.

    3) If I like your work, I will increase your salary twice as much as you are getting now.

    Please check my sentences.

    Re: If I like your work I will increase your salary by twice.

    Try to rewrite 1 and 3 using the verb "double". The resulting sentences should be much shorter than your originals.
    2 is missing an article.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Well done. They're all OK.

    There's little reason for the manager to pick number 3. Number 1 says the same thing with 71% as many words.
    I am not a teacher.
