Understanding the three most common grammatical errors can help you improve your writing. When you know which errors to look for, it’s easier to act as your own editor.

  1. Mistakes when using an apostrophe

e.g.
Incorrect:        My mothers house is next to his house.
Correct:          My mother’s house is next to his house.

        Or (and this is really common!)

Incorrect:       The cat ate it’s food.
Correct:         The cat ate its food.

  1. Subject and Verb Agreement

If you are speaking or writing in the present tense, and the sentence has a plural subject, then the verb must be in        the plural also, if the subject is singular the verb must be singular also.

e.g.
Incorrect:        The exercises is good for the student.
Correct:          The exercises are good for the student.
