Swimming Strokes by Lee Carroll
Paragraph 2: When most people think of swimming, they think of the crawl stroke. It involves flutter kicking with your legs as you pull yourself through the water with your arms while alternating your breathing from side to side. The most important part of the crawl stroke is the pull, so strength in the arms are important. The motion of the arms are hand-over-hand. To do the pull, start with the left arm bent at the elbow with the hand pointed down to your hip while the right hand is stretched out in front of you. Pull the hand down through the water until it brush your right thigh. At the same time, bring your right elbow up and reach out in front of you with your right hand. Then repeat the pattern. To me, the hardest part of the crawl stroke is getting the rhythm of your breathing down. A typical pattern is right-arm pull, left-arm pull, right-arm pull and breathe on the left side; followed by left-arm pull, right-arm pull, left-arm pull while breathing on the right side. How many errors are there in paragraph 2 relating to subject-verb agreement, parallelism, and pronoun-antecedent agreement?

In paragraph 2 of Swimming Strokes by Lee Carroll, I found 1 error in subject-verb agreement, 0 errors in parallelism, and 1 error in pronoun-antecedent agreement. I was wondering were they correct because all the errors in the passage range from 0 errors to 3 errors and nothing higher than 3 errors?

    I found 2 errors in subject-verb agreement.
