    Exclamation Re: please correct the following sentences

    • Who want to go to the Disney Land? Is it want or wants and Why?(It can be both, who can stand for both singular and plural noun)
    2. You are the person who know him better. Why don’t you tell us about him?. We are interested to hear from you. (Here who stands for a singular person, so who knows will be correct)
    3. My driving class is starting on 15th of this month
    4. He is family. Does this sentence mean he belongs to my family? No you must say He is a family member or He belongs to family. Is this sentence applicable only to my dad and brothers or Can I say a relative of mine as family? Family means; one's closest relatives, parents(dad and mother), children, brothers, and sisters
    5. This tool is much worser than the previous one. (much worse is correct)
    6. I have one more question related with/to this. (both can be used)
    7.I’m not good at speaking English. Neither am I good at written English. (It may be correct)
    8.If somebody says ‘You are looking fine today’. Even I want to reply the same to that person. Is it ok to say ‘so you are ’. (It is fine)If not, what is the better reply?
