  • 6. 

    Enviroment (Wrong spelling)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "environment". The word is spelled with an "n" instead of an "m". The correct spelling refers to the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant operates or exists. The incorrect spelling "enviroment" is a common misspelling of the word.

    Rate this question:

    Lost (Wrong spelling for noun)

    Explanation
    'lost' is the past simpke and past participle of 'lose'. The noun is 'loss'.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    I found really interesting the classes. (Wrong word order)

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "I found the classes really interesting." The original sentence has incorrect word order, with "really interesting" placed before "the classes." In English, it is more common to place adjectives after the noun they modify. Therefore, the correct sentence should be "I found the classes really interesting."

  • 9. 

    I'm boring because there's nothing exciting to do. (Wrong spelling)

  • 10. 

    I told to my friends to go to the cinema. (Unnecessary preposition)

    Explanation
    The given sentence "I told to my friends to go to the cinema" contains an unnecessary preposition "to" before the object "my friends". The correct sentence should be "I told my friends to go to the cinema" which omits the unnecessary preposition. The answer given is also correct as it provides the corrected sentence without the unnecessary preposition.

    He was so much interested in the book that he didn't hear the noise.  (Grammar error)
