Please check if I've done the following exercise correctly. My correction for each error is in red in bracket next to the error.

Underline any incorrect words or phrases and correct them in the following passage:

Most people agreed (agree) that pop music started in the U.S. in the 1950s and that it developed from black American music. When it started, it was especially to (for) young people. In many countries they liked listening to it and dancing to it because it was exciting and it was the (a) way of rebelling against their parents’ generation. Many of (of) parents strongly disapproved of it. They disliked the way many pop stars looked like and act (acted). They thought the music was rubbish and the groups couldn’t sing or play their instruments neither (either). They said that pop music wouldn’t last for long time (a long time). Today, attitudes are different. Many of today’s parents are people who loved pop music when they were young, and still love. As the result of this, pop music is no longer only to (for) the young. In addition, some of the stars whose careers began a long time later (ago) and who are now middle-aged are just as popular today as they were then. Their original fans still like them, perhaps because they remind them of when they were young. At the same time, new generations of young people buy their records and go to the (their) concerts. So that pop music was not just a brief fashion. All these years later, it is more popular than ever.

Oh wait. I've found one more error. What about "As the result of this"? I would replace the with a
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I usually see the phrase "As a result" and after that is a comma: "As a result, ...". But I'm not sure whether "as a result of this" or "as the result of this" would be correct.
Please help me. I am looking forward to your replies.
Hi,
'As a result' is probably more common.

'As the result' stresses that there is only one result.
