Homework Help: english correcting

Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, December 22, 2011 at 4:34pm.

Hi,

I need help to see if I corrected these correctly.
(The things I need to correct are on top my work is on the bottom.)

Thanx

One sunny day the rabbit was running fast, and hopping around quickly

showing off as usual; you know how rabbits are, but the slow turtle can hardly
even move around. <-This is a run-on sentence.

I guess the only time turtles run fast; is when they go after insects. <-This was correct originally. No semi-colon is needed
here.



The turtle disagreed because he knew the rabbit was way faster than he was. <-You fixed the capitalization, but didn’t change the
wording.

The other two turtles would also hide; the fourth would hide close to the
finish line. <-This should be 2 sentences.

The rabbit lost his mind; He got a stick, and started beating the turtle's back
shell. <-Should be 2 sentences.



Breaking the turtle's shell. <-Where is the second
sentence? Also, breaking is the wrong tense. This should be in past tense, and
it needs to include a connection to this, “That is why the turtle has spots all
over him.”



He told the ants to eat his fat he got in there. <-Fix wording.

So the ants ate the turtle's fat; the blood in the turtles back shell started sewing him up. <-Fix highlight, and check the wording. This doesn’t make
sense.
