Topic: please check it for grammatical mistakes
Posted: Sunday, September 10, 2017 3:57:39 AM
It's my nephew's birthday and I am presenting him a book. I want to write the following note on its front page. Kindly check whether the note is correct or not.

"As you walk along the path of life, make friends with book, then you will never be alone for they will never leave you side and you will grow up to be wise and knowledgeable."

"You have to do as many sit-ups as the mistakes you make."

Kindly tell me if the above statement is grammatically correct or not.
Topic: Transformation of sentences
Posted: Sunday, August 20, 2017 10:35:48 AM
I was asked to transform a complex sentence into compound sentence. The question was 'come when you like.'

I transformed it into 'pick up the time of your choice and you can come then.'

Kindly tell me if what I did is correct or not.

"The area of framing questions from is huge."

Kindly tell me if the above written statement is correct if I want to mean that the portion from which questions will be asked is vast.

Kindly tell me who has been referred to as 'white chief' and 'Big chief' in Chief Seattle's speech 1854.

"The white chief says that Big Chief at Washington sends us greetings of friendship and goodwill. This is kind of him for we know he has little need of our friendship in return."

FounDit thanks for the help. Truecaller is an application that can be installed on mobile phones. It shows the true identity of the caller. You can google it.

Instead of saying 'true caller showed your name' if I say 'I got your name on true caller' would it be clear and understandable?

A friend called me from an unknown number but I identified him and on being questioned how I got to know that it was he, I said 'I got your name on true caller', Was I correct to say that?

Dragonspeaker thanks for suggestions. However, it would be kind of you if you tell me what about my version "Google reminds me that six days are left to leave for Bengaluru."

"Google reminds me six days days to leave for Bengaluru."

A friend posted the above sentence on facebook, by the sentence she wanted to mean that google is giving her reminder that she would have to leave for Bengaluru in six days. My confusion is that the sentence doesn't ring right in my ears. I feel that it should have been "Google reminds me that six days are left to leave for Bengaluru." However I would like to have your thoughts on the topic.
