You know who I am. Nice response.

The third sentence should be, "Should I use the word 'shout' or 'cry'?"


OR 'Does she shout or cry?'
In fact, the cats neither shout nor cry, they mew.
Probably, the story-teller(writer) has written this sentence to make simpler for kids to understand easily.

Other corrections notwithstanding.

PINEAPPLE

Prickly pineapple, you are a deceiver but a gem.
Hard exterior belies that sweet yellow flesh.
Messy head shoots up from soil's stems
tantalizing mesmerizing us with your sweet relish.

You are the symbol of peaceful serenity.
Carved on homestead entrances and bed frames
since olden times, your visage a sign of hospitality
as you smile at weary guests in your warm embrace.

Your fleshy chunks, an adornment to ham and bacon.
Shrimp and pineapple an Asian delight.
With ice cream, kids sensational sweet succulent haven.
Vitamins galore in your goodness for a healthy heart and clear sight.

I will dance a tango with you and mango, as apple plays a sweet lyric.
Banana will beat the drums so we can groove to the midnight beat.
Plum will sing a sonnet as she serenades strawberry's dazzling magic.
Celebration ends as we bathe in warm fruity juices in ecstacy and heat.

It reads as follows:
Dear parents
Please can you complete the attached survey. This is sent on behalf of Leeds City Council.
Please can you return to school by ....
Should it not say "please can you return it(survey) to school.."?
How do we know when to omit "it" or "pronoun" in the given context?
needs editing

In my opinion, it should be addressed as follows.
