Correct my sentences 4 !

I have been racking my mind all day, but I still can't place her.

I make mistakes as much as the next person .

She suddenly broke into crying/tears.

Don't strain your eyes by studying in this dim light.

They have to make products of higher quality, or I'm not sold on the idea
of buying a new car from them.

Can you remember what you were doing this time last week?

I was chasing him by car, trying my best not let him out of my sight.

Thanks.

I have been wracking my brain all day, but I still can't replace her. (Please note, I have no idea what you mean by "replace her" in this context.)

Correct.

Were you chasing him? Or were you chasing her? Was there a man driving with a female passenger, so you were effectively chasing him (or them) but your purpose was not to lose sight of her?

Thanks.

See above.

My friend, please keep in mind not to let it sound like an order.
I believe many members won't help you anymore if you continue to go this way.
Although I'm sure you did not mean it, I would like to give you this friendly advice anyway :)

Cheers!

I think everybody already knows that I don't mean to order them to correct it. It's just a topic for the tread. Don't take that seriously. I'm very grateful to the people helping me with my English.

Maybe adding a plz would suffice!

A "please" would suffice, but not "plz" please!
