Question:

"The antiquated machinery at the old steal mill is a danger to all of the factory’s employees."
Which of the following corrects an error in the sentence above?

A Replace steal with steel
explanation


"Replace steal with steel" is the correct answer. This is correct because steel is a metal, whereas steal refers to the act of taking something without permission.
"Replace machinery with machinary." This is incorrect because machine ends with an -e, so -ery is the correct suffix.
"Replace employee with employe." This is incorrect because -ee indicates a person.
"Replace factory’s with factories." This is incorrect because the suffix -ies indicates a plural form, while an apostrophe and -s indicate ownership.
