    Smile this is not a hard thing, but...

    There was a contest in my city. I'm from Romania so this isn't very hard.Some of my friends say this is wrong , but some say it isn't. So...can you help me?

    None of them hadn't visited that country before.
    and
    In my room are a computer, a TV set and a play station.



    I think I know what's wrong , but I would feel better if a teacher would say it.

    Welcome, I_rock_theworld.

    First, share with us why you think they are ungrammatical.

    Re: this is not a hard thing, but...

    well...because this was an exercise at a contest...and it sounded something like this "find the mistakes in each of the following sentence"..so it must have a mistake.

    OK. So, what are the mistakes? It's a contest, right?

    Re: this is not a hard thing, but...

    In my opinion..I don't know if it is right...I think it is "none of them had visited that country before."...but I'm not sure..something isn't...hmm... it sounds a little forced. And I have to add "there" to the second one.If it isn't good ..please don't laugh!



    P.S. - It isn't exactly a contest is more like ...a national exam. You see...I'm in the 8th grade...and this year(two weeks from now)I have # important exams, but this was optional.(there was a contest a month ago...it was harder but I just mess up easy things...can't help it).Thanks for helping me by the way!!!

    Re: this is not a hard thing, but...

    Hmm the second one seems grammatical to me. Can anyone explain why it is not?

    Not on this thread, sorry. It's related to a homework assignment.
