    I agree with Rover though I'd be inclined to use "and" instead of "or".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Proofreading 1 sentence

    Yes, use and.

    It should be "a sentence" or "one sentence," not "1 sentence."

    Multiple is overused, especially by newspaper reporters. In general, words like many, a lot, several, or countless are less wordy and will serve you better in conversation.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
