Hiyya, fellas! It’s time for today’s session. How good are you at finding mistakes? Well, I’ve prepared 10 sentences. Point out what’s wrong with them and fix them. Ready? Get set! Go…
Q1. Can’t you see? There’s a huge different between the one on the right and the one on the left.
@naadyannisa: Different >> difference
@latifahHM: because the word must be a noun (difference), not an adjective (different)
Q2. I must have gained weight. This jeans is not enough big for me.
@hadyanq: “Big enough”, because enough is an adverb so it has to be placed after adjective
@vectoreza: not big enough. Adjective first.

Q3. Can you point out where is the mistake?
@Laurafadilah: I think ‘is’ should be put in the end of the sentence.. not sure thou.
@latifahHM: where the mistake is, coz it’s a subordinate clause which must be a statement, not question.
@OwLuck: can you point out where the mistake is, cause I think double question

Q4. That ring is expensive as an Alphard.
@latifahHM: *Expensive as, it’s positive degree so that it must be ‘as+adjective+as’, That ring is as expensive as…
Q5. You need to take out those wet clothes and have a hot bath.
Answer: To take something out berarti mengeluarkan sesuatu. Before you take a bath, you need to take off your clothes. To take something off berarti melepas sesuatu. So it should be “take off those wet clothes”

The answer to Q6 is quite simple really, fellas. Who would drive a plane? The answer is: The pilot flew the plane.
Q7. I found out a hundred thousand in your jeans.
@latifahHM: *found out, find out means get information about something, *I found a hundred thousand in your jeans.
Q8. We have already make our decision. You’re fired!

Q9. In the other hand, maybe we should move to Bali.
@izky_paramitha: In the other hand is simply saying that you are holding something in the “other” hand so the correct one is on the other hand.
Q10. This has got to be the most comfortablest hotel I have ever stayed in.
@ritaaprilli: the most comfortable is superlative degree. Why use ‘the most’? Bcos comfortable has 4 syllable. ‘com-for-ta-ble’ no need est
