If you keep practicing, you will eventually improve your skills.
Hint: there are six wrong sentences.
Wrong – “has been cancelled” or “was cancelled” (passive form needs the “be” verb included)
Wrong – “even though she is fifty-years-old” (the conjunction is “even though”, not just “even”)
Wrong – “every passenger has” (the word “every” connects to a singular noun and singular verb)
Wrong – “wouldn’t have liked” (when using “would” to describe the past, it uses present perfect)
Wrong – “it’s not safe” (the word “safety” is a noun, but here you need the adjective “safe”)
Wrong – “I went” (when you mention an event in a finished time-period like “last year”, use past simple)
