1. Observed the reaction time for each mixture.

2. The primary alcohol reacted the quickest and the tertiary alcohol reacted the slowest.

Thanks in advance.


I don't know how to correct these sentences that are gramatically incorrect (according to Word).

1. Observed the reaction time for each mixture. This is a fragment -- not a complete sentence. There is a verb here (observed) but no subject.

2. The primary alcohol reacted the quickest and the tertiary alcohol reacted the slowest. There are two adjectives used here that should be adverbs since they are trying to describe HOW something was done. How would you change "quickest" and "slowest" into adverbs?
