    Verb "draw"

    I have tried to use "draw" in my sentences. "Busker" is BrE for a street musician. Would you please correct my sentences?

    1. The busker was playing well and drew applause from the passersby who stood around him to enjoy in his music.

    2. Peter drew strength from the faith in a better future.

    3. When Bob saw Gina for the first time, he was drawn to her right away. Her smile hit him like a sunbeam.

    I would say passers-by. Do you need a comma after it?

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