    confussed about possisiveness

    Hi!

    I am very confused with the use of possessiveness in a sentence like

    Their anger is ACTED OUT in their antisocial behavior.
    Or
    Their anger is acted out in antisocial behavior.

    I have done my schooling from KV GURGAON
    Or
    I have done schooling from KV GURGAON

    We have learnt /learned that in our school
    Or
    We have learnt/learned about that in school

    Can you please proofread the above sentences?

    Thx

    Sunil.

    Both are fine.
    #1 is specific to the people under discussion; #2 is a general statement about how antisocial behaviour arises.

    I have done my schooling from KV GURGAON
    Or
    I have done schooling from KV GURGAON

    I did / had my schooling at KV GURGAON.

    We have learnt /learned that in our school
    Or
    We have learnt/learned about that in school

    Both are fine; the first is specifically referring to the school attended; the second is a general statement.

    Can you please proofread the above sentences?

    Thx

    Sunil.
