Manjusha, 

 

Normally, it is acceptable to ask about a pair or a few phrases.  I will help you with your post, but please understand that Grammarly Answers is designed to discuss grammar and english usage, not for editing and proofreading.  In the future, please keep your posts related to those questions and themes which will create useful conversation for other users.

 

Corrections:

 

2.)  In the school the English should be taught by qualified teachers.* In the school English should be taught by qualified teachers.

 

 -- you should not use 'the' before school unless you are talking about a specific school, a specific location.  If you want to talk about all schools, do not use 'the'.

 

-- consider adding a comma after 'school'.

3.)  If you eat too much junk food,you might feel a problem in future.* 

 

--  'feel' is not the right verb to use in this context.  We don't feel problems.  Consider using 'have' or 'experience'.

4.)  In this days youth spend a lot of time at social networking.*

 

-- 'In this days'  is better written as 'These days' or 'Nowadays', followed by a comma.

 

-- Because social networking is an activity, not a place, you should not use 'at' here.

5.)  I can't cope up with a lot of stress.* 

 

-- 'Cope' is not used with 'up'.

6.)  After our discussion,I am understanding you better now.* 

 

-- First, you should not put two different time modifiers in the same sentence.  Use 'After our discussion' or 'now', not both.

--  With the verb 'understand' it is better to use the present simple, 'understand', rather than the continuous tense, 'to be understanding'.


7.)  If I were a Prime Minister of this country,I changed the education systems first.* 

 

-- The constuction of this sentence is incorrect.  You want to use the Second conditional, learn about it here.
-- We only have one education system, not many.


8.)  He can be able to sing very well.* 

 

-- 'Can' and 'be able' are synonyms.  Keep it simple.  Choose one.  'Can' is more widely used.

9.)  The best part I liked about the movie were the action scenes.* 

 

-- Here we have a problem with verb-number agreement.  If you remove 'I liked about the movie' and check the sentence you will see what I mean.  You should say ' The best parts were' or 'the best part was'.

10.)  Its a big relief that I did not screw up my lab exams.* 

 

-- Its = possessive of it.  It's = it is.

11.)  I have earned many friends in my college here.* 

 

-- We don't use 'earn' with friends, but 'make'.

12.)  Myself Divya, I am coming from Chennai.* 

 

-- "Myself, Divya, I come (present simple) from Chennai.

13.)  My most saddest moment was when I did not got through the interview.* 

 

-- You have a problem with superlatives, read more about it here.

-- When 'do' is in the past tense, the related verb is always in the infinitive form, 'I did not get. . .'

14.)  When I was in my tenth class,I use to go to play cricket.* 

 

-- You don't need to have 'to go' in this sentence.  It's clearer if you say only 'to play'.

15.)  We all of us visited so many places last year.*

 

-- Use 'we' or 'all of us', but not both.

16.)  I'm not speaking to nobody in this class.* 

 

-- Here you have a double negative.  In English each sentence can only have one negative, this is different from a lot of other languages.  It's better to say: "I'm not speaking to anybody. . ."

17.)  An interesting incident happened with me in starting.* 

 

-- When you talk about the start of something, call it "the beginning."

18.)  We are having many beautiful beaches in city.* 

 

-- If something is a fact, a habit, or something that isn't changing, use the present simple, not continuous.

19.)  I went to library to get as many informations as possible.*

 

-- "Information" in English is an uncountable noun.  There is no plural.  You cannot use the word many with 'information'.  You should use 'much'.

20.)  Most directors do not mind to give chance to new actors.* 

 

-- After the verb 'mind', you need to use the gerund (-ing), not the infinitive of 'give'.

 

-- And you should use a indefinite article, a, before 'chance'.

21.)  It is no good expecting for promotion within the first six months.* 

 

-- 'Expecting' does not take a dependent preposition.  You do not need to write 'for'.

-- And you should use a indefinite article, a, before 'promotion'.

22.)  George and Meena often argues with their boss.* 

 

-- He, she, it argues BUT they argue.

23.)  I stay at the back side of the Levis store.* 

 

-- If you are talking about location, use the verb 'to be'.

-- 'At the back side of' in English means 'behind'.  You should use this word instead.

24.)  Rani Mukherjee's flat is near to my home.* 

 

-- 'Near' does not have to be used with the preposition 'to'.

25.)  I returned back from my home on 2'o clock at Wednesday.*

 

-- 'Return' cannot be used with 'back.'  You're confusing 'come back' with 'return'.
