Please read through the paragraph and make correction where you find mistakes.

Thanks.

It was sad because it had flown far away from home. As it was dark, it could not see its way back home.

Can anyone say this in a shorter way, please?

sundarnazPlease read through the paragraph

It's hardly a paragraph. It's just a couple of sentences.

sundarnazIt was sad because it had flown far away from home.

Is the first "it" a dummy subject, or is it a reference to the bird?

sundarnazAs it was dark, it could not see its way back home.

Birds do travel and even migrate at night. Do you still want to stick with that sentence?

The question is 'why was the bird sad?'

Answer:

It was sad because it had flown far away from its home. As it was dark, it couldn't see its way back home.

Thank you.

Would you please have a look at this, too? If it isn't much trouble.
