    There is a man who sleeps on the floor instead of the bed.

    There is a man who sleeps on the floor instead of the bed. He sleeps on the mattress. He spreads a mattress and sheets on the floor and sleeps on them. He spreads his bedding on the floor like mattress, bed sheet etc and sleeps on them.

    Are my sentences correct?

    Or you can roll it out if it's not too thick.

    I think you can spread a mattress out on the floor, if it's not too thick and rigid. For example, before you inflate an air mattress, you spread the mattress out.

    There is a man who sleeps on the floor instead of the bed. He sleeps on the mattress. He spreads or drags or rolls out a mattress and sheets on the floor and sleeps on them. He spreads or drags or rolls out (what should I use here with bedding?) his bedding on the floor, like mattress, bed sheet etc and sleeps on them.

    You have given me three possibilities so I have used all three in my sentences.

    And, as we're tiring of telling you, we want you to stop putting all the choices in the same sentence. Please write out the three sentences about the mattress, one using "spreads", one using "drags" and one using "rolls out". Do the same with the sentence about bedding. There will be six sentences (number them from 1 to 6) in total once you've done it correctly. Don't post the first sentence again at all for now.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
