    are these sentences right?



    Hi there,

    I wonder if the following sentences are gramatically correct and if they make sense.
    Can somebody help me? Thanks!

    -If one day there were any problems in my neighbourhood, this programme could be the solution
    -Is a fine cancelled? Annulled? Retired?
    -My garden is not perfect, I know, but form here / this (?) to untidy there’s a long way
    -The fine is for / because of (?) my untidy garden
    -This fine is absolutely unfair under my circumstances
    -You should do this exercise as / for (?) homework
    -My dog loves making holes in the garden
    -Antisocial behaviour orders are a good idea for all the people in my neighbourhood (we all can benefit from them)
    -She passed the university entrance exam on Saturday
    -Everybody should receive a good education since childhood
    -It is important to go on studying after the university

    -My garden is not perfect, I know, but from here / this (?) to untidy there’s a long way You could use either.
    -The fine is for / because of (?) my untidy garden "for" is better; either might be used.
    -This fine is absolutely unfair under my circumstances in my circumstances/under the circumstances
    -You should do this exercise as / for (?) homework Both can be used.

    -Everybody should receive a good education since from childhood
    -It is important to go on studying after university.


    Are " since" and " the university" wrong or just not good ? Please.

    "since childhood" means after you have stopped being a child.
    "from childhood" means from the point in childhood that you can start learning.

    In this context, it is the general term for institutions of tertiary education - university - and not a specific tertiary education institute - the university
