Zahid: If he came, he might fall sick.
Qasim: You don’t fall sick when you swim.
Zahid: Salim’s heart is weak. He could fall sick, if he swam.
Qasim: You could have gone to the park.
Zahid: Tahir and Salman said that if we went to the park, they wouldn’t join.
Qasim: Then what?
Zahid: Someone suggested that we visit the museum. However, half the group objected and said that if we went there , they wouldn’t come.
Zahid: They said that they couldn’t amuse themselves, if we just went there.

Work in pairs and correct the punctuation and capitalization in the following passage. Here are some tips on how to do it:
Step 1: Read each paragraph and identify where each sentence is getting completed. Mark that part. Read again to see whether it is a question or a statement. If it is a question, put a question mark, otherwise put a full stop.
Step 2: Read each sentence again to see where commas and apostrophes are needed.
Step 3: Check and put the capital letters where needed.
Step 4: Read the whole passage again to check for any errors.
how long does it take to form a new habit i looked for an answer the same way most people do nowadays i asked google the answer i got was 21 days it seemed that if you repeat a behaviour everyday for 21 days you can form a brand-new habit then i asked can one change all types of behaviour in 21 days or just some types i was not able to find an answer all I could find out was that if it was exercise smoking writing a diary or turning cartwheels you could do it 21 days the important thing was to maintain a chain of 21 days without breaking it
one psychologist mr mohan decided to do some research to find out if all new habits could be formed in just 21 days about 100 people from the multan university participated in the research they were asked to choose a behaviour that they wanted to turn into a habit they all had to choose something they didnt already do that could be repeat every day what do you think the result was the results showed that on average it took 66 days until a habit was formed however this does not mean that people werent able to form new habits in 21 days according to the study findings some habits could be formed in 21 days while some could take as long as 254 days so 21 days to form a habit is probably right as long as all you want to do is drink a glass of water after breakfast anything harder is likely to take longer to become a really strong habit and in the case of some activities much longer
How long does it take to form a new habit? I looked for an answer, in the same way, most people do nowadays. I asked google, the answer i got was 21 days. It seemed that if you repeat a behaviour everyday for 21 days you can form a brand-new habit then i asked, can one change all types of behaviour in 21 days or just some types? I was not able to find an answer. All I could find out was that if it was exercise, smoking, writing a diary or turning cartwheels, you could do it in 21 days. The important thing was to maintain a chain of 21 days without breaking it.
One psychologist Mr. Mohan decided to do some research to find out if all new habits could be formed in just 21 days, about 100 people from the Multan University participated in the research. They were asked to choose a behaviour that they wanted to turn into a habit. They all had to choose something they didn’t already do, that could be repeat every day. What do you think the result was?
The results showed that on average, it took 66 days until a habit was formed. However, this does not mean that people weren’t able to form new habits in 21 days. According to the study findings, some habits could be formed in 21 days, while some could take as long as 254 days, so 21 days to form a habit is probably right as long as all you want to do is drink a glass of water after breakfast. Anything harder is likely to take longer to become a really strong habit and in the case of some activities much longer.
