I do not know what is wrong with this sentence, Can anyone help?
Criminalize cyber bullying could act as a deterrent to prevent cyber bullying in the future.
In order to make a verb, an activity, the grammatical subject (or object) of a sentence, it must be in gerund form (verb+ing). As well, you need a hyphen in cyber-bullying; the verb prevent is unnecessary with the noun deterrent; and there is no need to repeat cyber-bullying: Criminalizing cyber-bullying could act as a deterrent in the future. One other option instead of a gerund is to change criminalize into its noun form, criminalization: The criminalization of cyber-bullying could act as a deterrent in the future.
