Is the above sentence acceptable?

It is not quite right. It should end "...for your row". The last student is doing it for their whole row.
Collect the homework of only one row at a time and return it corrected the
next day.

Hi Sitifan

Is your last post intended as a question? A disagreement? A challenge? Something else?

I agree with Jeannie's rewording of your original sentence. It sounds much more natural to me.

Hi Sitifan,



Common logic says this.
Column is vertical

Row is horizontal

Your front and back align with the seats in a column.. To your left and right is the row.



If you are facing the teacher, and you want the homework to be collected by the last person at the end of the row, you must specify to the class “pass your home work to your left, or right. When everyone has done so, the last student will be the designated collector. Any more question? By the way, I suggest that you form your commons with care on your replies. They sounded quite blunt in my opinion.

It's intended as a question. I hope someone can clarify my doubts.

1. Collect the homework of only one row at a time and return it corrected the next day.

2. Collect the homework for only one row at a time and return it corrected the next day.

Do you mean #2 is much more natural than #1?

Hi,
While you are waiting for Amy’s response, I am going to render my opinion on the two questions.



1. Collect the homework of only one row at a time and return it corrected the next day.

2. Collect the homework for only one row at a time and return it corrected the next day.
They make no sense to me....

No, they are about as natural as a Frenchman trying to eat rice with chopsticks from a dinner plate. Messy and absoultely confusing!

Who is doing the correcitng and returning of the homework?



I think it's an imperative sentence.
sitifan1. Collect the homework of only one row at a time and return it corrected the next day.

2. Collect the homework for only one row at a time and return it corrected the next day.
Ok, I think what those pesky sentences mean is this:

Collect the homework from each successive row each day and return them corrected the following day.
