I request all langauge coaches to correct the above sentences if I did wrong.

thank you.

  1. He swore from GOD.

Correction : He swrote to God. [color=blue]The expected answer is possibly “He swore to God” (which may be what you intended to write), but it’s unusual for this to be a complete sentence. Usually “You swear to God that (something)”. I also don’t understand why “GOD” is in capitals in the original, and whether that is another error to be corrected. It seems odd.

  1. Is your dress different than mine?

Correction : Is your dress different than my? [color=blue]No. The expected answer is possibly “Is your dress different from mine?”. However, the status and relative merits of “different from/to/than” are debated.

  1. He inquired whether I live in Newyork.

Correction : He inquired if I live in Newyork. [color=blue]No. Possibly they are expecting “He inquired whether I lived in New York.”

  1. He spoke these words upon his face.

Correction: He spoke these works on his face. [color=blue]I have no idea what is expected. Poor question.

  1. They ran direct to their college.

Correct it please, as I’am not sure about this one [color=blue]This is correct as it stands.

  1. They have been building a wall since three days.

Correction : They have been building a wall for three days. [color=blue]Correct.

  1. He does not have some devotion to his studies.

Correction : He does not have any devotion for his studies. [color=blue]No. Changing “some” to “any” may be what’s expected, but “to” was OK in the original.
