Can you please correct these sentences(concerning grammar)

We should reduce a politician salary.
I hate to eat sweets because it is not good for my teeth.
I am going to ban her computer games.
I work only a few hours for a month.
My salary is going to reduce.
He was a judge in Tv show.
They would ban fast food restaurants.
When I eat sweets my fingers become sticky.

Do we say: some kind of a show or some kind of show?
can we use ban with ing? She banned smoking.

    Be sure to compare your sentences with mine very carefully to catch all the large and small corrections made.

    We should reduce politicians' salaries.

    I hate to eat sweets because They are not good for my teeth.

    I am going to ban her from playing computer games.

    I work only a few hours each month.

    My salary is going to be reduced.

    He played a judge on a TV show.

    They would ban fast-food restaurants.

    When I eat sweets, my fingers become sticky.

    Do we say: some kind of a show or some kind of show? That depends on the entire sentence; I can't tell from just part of a sentence.


    can we use ban with ing? She banned smoking. Yes. The -ing word would then be used as a gerund, and it'd be used as a direct object in that sentence.

    It would also be helpful to add WHERE she banned smoking -- such as "She banned smoking in her house." OR "She banned smoking in her car."

  • English - Native speakers - ,

    In the second sentence above -- to capital T on "they"!!

  • English - Native speakers - ,

    Thank you :) Don't we use hate only with ing? I hate to eat is also correct?

  • English - Native speakers - ,

    Yes, "hate" can be used with a gerund (-ing verb form) or infinitive (to -- verb form). In either case (or if you choose to complete "hate" with a noun clause of some kind) that word/clause is serving as a direct object.

    If you need information on gerunds, infinitives, or noun clauses, let me know.
