"This is one of the story written by me, I have a plan to publish a story next February book fair but I have doubt enough that public will like it not."
How many grammatical mistakes in above speech?

Hello mousumi kabir,

We don't offer a service of correcting people's written work as we simply don't have time - and if we did offer such a service then we would have no time for anything else! However, I will do this once for you. The corrected version of this sentence would be:

"This is one of the stories I have written. I plan to publish a story at next February's book fair but I have some doubts as to whether or not the public will like it."

I'm very glad to find this site
Can I ask some questions and have answers
1- Stephen said that , so do you get to travel ...., what is the meaning of ( get to) . If it has the same mean of (have to).
2- It's got two sections . 's is a brief of is or has.
3- Kettle's boiled . Why does she use (passive).
And, thanks.

Hi manaia,

1. In this context, 'get to' means 'have the opportunity to'.

2. The 's here is a contraction of 'has' (from 'has got').

3. The 's here is a contraction of 'has'; the form is a present perfect form (it has boiled).

Best wishes,
