    Lightbulb Which sentence is correct?

    1. Please describe me your place or Please describe to me your place?

    2. Do you have any question or Do you have any questions?

    3. Maybe its time I taught you how to show some respect or Maybe its about time that Ill teach you how to show some respect! (are bothe correct?)
    (because in the tv ad for Oreo cookies, the man said to his child: Now its time I taught you something... how to eat an Oreo cookiee...)


    kinda confused here

    The second one, PP.

    2. Do you have any question or Do you have any questions?

    Normally the latter.

    3. Maybe its time I taught you how to show some respect or Maybe its about time that Ill teach you how to show some respect! (are both correct?)

    'will' wouldn't be used in normal circumstances.

    1...Please describe your place to me.
    2...Do you have any questions?
    3...Both ''teach'' and ''taught' are said, but ''taught'' is probably more common. I, not I'll, is what is said.

    Re: Which sentence is correct?

    How about any question, is it utterly wrong?
