(3) He wants admission into Dhaka university

  1. He wants admission into Dhaka university.
  2. I have stopped smoking.
  3. A smaller number of people die on the roads in Dhaka city than in most capital cities of the world.
    Are the sentences correct?
  1. is grammatically correct, but I’m not sure that’s the best way to say it. Do you mean ‘He is seeking admission (in)to Dhaka University’.
    The others are okay.

(overlapped with Beeesneees)

  1. This is not impossible, but “He wants to gain admission to Dhaka University” seems more polished. Assuming “Dhaka University” is a proper name, the word “University” should be capitalised.

  2. OK.

  3. This is not wrong, but “Fewer people die…” seems easier.

“I have stopped smoking.” and “I stop smoking.”

Which one best?

“I stop smoking” is grammatically possible, but the range of circumstances in which it would be correct to say this is very limited. It cannot be used as a substitute for “I have stopped smoking”.

what about now?
I have stopped to smoke.

He wants to get admit into Dhaka University.
Now is this correct?

That is worse. ‘admission’ is the correct form as indicated in the earlier messages.

I have stopped smoking.
I have started to smoke. / I have started smoking.

‘stopped to smoke’ is not correct unless you mean you have stopped travelling from one place to another in order to smoke.

Hi Duet062010.

‘I stop smoking’ could be used by someone who regularly tries to stop smoking as in: He stops smoking at least once a week but can’t break the habit.
