  1. 1. writing (writting is a misspelling)
    2. I don't like "where" but prefer "when"
    3. either or and neither nor but not half affirmative and half negative
    4. no error (Hispanics have the same feeling often of disrespect looking into an elder's eyes)
    5. had not hardly begun is bad grammar = had hardly begun

    Now, Bayarbold, please attempt the answer yourself FIRST, because it is YOUR work and not OURS. By this post, you should understand what to do. We like the post where you asked the question about have/has versus had. THAT is what we like to see, in addition to YOUR answers.
