    Smile Re: the same objects-them

    This is my essay question assignment. I don't know if there are any mistakes. I hope you can find them and correct them.


    I think the first 'them' is redundant, isn't it? Can I delete it?

    I hope you can find and correct them.


    Thanks!

    I think that finding mistakes and correcting mistakes are two different things. Another example of this usage:
    When the police are looking for criminals they want to find them and arrest them.

    You could say: proofread my assigment.

    BTW, I like your 'have a good dream' - a rather unusual greeting I'd say.

    I think you can drop the first -them.
