    1.i Hope My Students Will Submit subsequent Assignments On Time.
    2.i Don't Have The The liberty To Suspend You. "freedom" or "right" would both be better here.
    3.i acknowledge My Mistake And Vow Not To Repeat The Same In The Future.
    4.we Drove Past lofty Buildings.
    5.the Scenario evokes Pity And Sympathy In Us.
    6.i Found To My Utter dismay That None Of The Students had Completed Their Work.
    7.it Was A dreary Day In The School.
    8. I Stood outside To Watch The Sunset On A bleak Afternoon.
    9.It is gloomy Out Today.
    10.I Stood bewildered At His Reaction.
    11.I am striving To Increment My Students' Vocabulary. "improve" or "build" would be better.
    12.enriching Vocabulary Is significant For Effective Communication.
    13.these Grades Are A consequence Of Your Carefree Attitude Towards Studies. "...towards your studies" OR "...towards study".
    14.we Find Out Who Who Our Real Friends Are In Times Of crisis.
    15.he recounts His Tale Of Prolonged Suffering.
    16.don't hasten In Answering The Questions. "Don't hasten to..." - but it is rather old-fashioned as a word >> "Don't hurry to...".
    17.he beamed At Me When I Asked for His Notebook.
    18.iam contemplating Whether To Give Worksheets Or Not.
    19.i Don't Think That He Deserves commend. "commend" is the verb. "commendation"
    20.he Took Me ostensibly To The Market. "Ostensibly he took me to the market" - but it is not clear what you mean.
    Capitalization - in general writing, you capitalize the first word in a sentence, the pronoun "I", and proper names.

    You only capitalize most words in the title of books or articles.

    Re: Are these correct?

    Hi there,

    I go along with all that Anglika wrote to you with one minor exception. In the first sentence "I don't have the authority to suspend you" would be a more common expression. You can use "liberty" but then the sentence would sound better as "I am not at liberty to suspend you" HOWEVER, the use of "not at liberty" is more for use when explaining that you are not allowed to do or say something. For example, you may hear a police spokesman in a TV report say that he/she "is not at liberty to discuss details of the crime" He/she may well have the authority to discuss the details but has been ordered, advised or has decided for some reason, that it would jeapordise the case.
    Hpoe that helps!
