    Hello everyone

    Is my response to this task correct?

    Read the following information about a Mr. A.G Sinclair. Rearrange the sentences so that they appear in chronological order.

    1. Until he was 18, Sinclair worked as a warehouseman at several firms and spent two years as a bus conductor.
    2. He was the first child in a family of three boys and two girls.
    3. After working as a bust conductor, Sinclair signed on in the Army but stayed only ten weeks before he bought himself out for 100.
    4. Sinclair was born on December 14, 1942.
    5. Quitting the army, Sinclair decided to better himself and after passing six examinations, he was about to start a teacher training course in Bradford.
    6.He left middle school with no qualifications and wen to work as a writer at the Queens Hotel. It was the first of a long series of jobs.
    7. After attending Mayflower Infants and Junior schools he went to Oaktown Secondary modern school.

    I have changed your thread titles. You can't have two threads both called 'chronological order'.

    Found in the pamphlet my teacher gave us. I reckon it's part of a Chinese book. Is there anything abnormal with it?

    The typographical errors were my fault while typing, not the the pamphlet's.
