Broken sentences

In this subediting exercise, you're given 30 deliberately broken sentences. The aim is to edit these sentences, picking up on bad spellings, punctuation and incorrect or confusing word use.

The sentences aren't particularly elegant, so as a follow-up you could consider rewriting them for greater clarity.

To get the answers to this exercise, email me.
