    TIA Unnecessary but if you really must write it, use the full "Thanks in advance" not a non-standard acronym/abbreviation.)
    See above. Remember to start every sentence (including full sentences inside quotation marks) with a capital letter and to capitalise the word "I" every time you write it.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "He conquered the market" is a bit different from "He cornered the market."

    One might say that Jeff Bezos conquered the 'brick and mortar' retail market, or is in the process of doing so.

    "If the government will change regulations that are beneficial to him, he will succeed to conquer the market."

    It really would help if you wrote in sentences, both for your examples, and your attempted clarifications.
