    Ranging from...to

    ''You have a lot of activities to do ranging from going sailing, going fishing , sunbathing to playing football, voleyball,and even according to where you are, feeding sharks.''

    The sentence I have written is grammatically correct? I have just been trying to use 'ranging from...to' correctly.

    Thanks for your help.

    Re: Ranging from...to

    "Ranging from ... to ..." is correct but you need an "and" before the last of the list after "ranging from". I'd remove "going" from before "sailing" and "fishing". I'd probably start with "There are" rather than "You have".

    There are a lot of activities available, ranging from sailing, fishing and sunbathing to football, volleyball and, depending on where you are, feeding sharks.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks for your answer. Now, I understand well. But I want to ask something. Is it necessary to remove ''going'' and ''playing''? Or you just prefer to remove? Thanks again.

    It's not necessary to remove them but I find the sentence better without them.
