Hello, Rahul - and welcome to English Forums. I have underlined some problems. Please fix them and re-post your revised sentences. Always leave at least one space after a closing parenthesis.

1) Alex wants to do a lot of things in life but is held back because of him being perennially in
thinking mode" (I do not understand 'thinking mode').

2) Alex decides to do things which he has been putting off forever but not before a surreal encounter with his uncle.

3) He plans to invest in stocks but is neither confident about his extensive research and nor does he wants to take help of a financial expert. (Rephrase the underlined and make it parallel in structure with 'is confident'.)

4) Though, after a lot of haggling they managed to bring the deposit money down to nine months,(can we use although here or though is ok??-- You must use 'although' at the beginning of a sentence.) Money is not measured in months.

5) They finally zero in a particular model of the Washing Machine.

6) He starts watching TV while lounging on the bean bag.

4)Although,after a lot of haggling they managed to bring the deposit amount down to nine months.

5)They finally zero in on a particular model of Washing Machine.

I will tell you once more: Always leave at least one space after a closing parenthesis.

1) I would use 'because he is perennially introspective' instead.

3) He plans to invest in stocks but is neither confident about his extensive research nor open to (gaining) the help of a financial expert.

4) Although after a lot of haggling they managed to bring the deposit amount down to nine months.-- Amounts are not measured in months either. This is not a complete sentence.

5) They finally zero in on a particular model of Washing Machine.- This last is still wrong. It is not a proper noun.
Hi,

Thanks for your superb guidane,It has helped me a lot,

After going through WIki regarding Noun concepts,I feel that last sentence should be written as below:-

5) They finally zero in on a particular model of a Front-loading Washing Machine (washing machine is a common noun:denotes a family)

Also,there is another sentence ,I am having few doubts regarding grammer:-

1 ) Mary lies completely drenched with sweat in Shane's arms

Looking fwd for your guidance,

Thanks in advance

Regards,

Rahul
No, no, they are all common nouns:

5) They finally zero in on a particular model of a front-loading washing machine.

Your other sentence is OK.

Hi,

Thanks for your previous guidance,I have a doubt in following two sentences,can you please verify that they are correct grammatically?:-

1 ) His perceived frustration at being cheated of his just credit in the business turns him into a frustrated soul.

2) Later, Alex invites Martin to a hotel with the excuse for the celebration of his impending visit to India.

I would be very thankful if you can guide regarding this,

Looking forward for your guidance.

Rahul
1 ) He is frustrated at being cheated of his credit in the business.-- You were too busy packing in adjectives to notice that you used a word form of 'frustrate' twice in the same sentence... and for no reason. Write simply and directly, Rahul.

2) Later, Alex invites Martin to a hotel with the excuse of celebrating his impending visit to India.
Hey,

Thanks a Lot,I will keep your suggestions in mind.

Regards,

Rahul
