Rashid, we don't do homework assignments here. We aren't employees.  This is a discussion forum.  We prefer that you ask a question for discussion, rather than issue a command.  Since it is only two sentences, I'll assume you don't understand what is wrong with them.  Both of these sentences are very close to being correct.

 

The first sentence is missing the article “a” before the word “little”.  Also, there should always be a space after a comma.

 

The second sentence only needs to change the preposition “to” to “for”.

Fully agreed with Patty on the grammar and on the sentiment!  :-)

The first one is correct. For the second sentence, you may say ''No marks will be given to an incompletely correct answer.

You are wrong on both counts, Ducdang123. The first sentence is not correct. I'm sorry to say that your rewrite of the second sentence is worse than the original.

Okay.
