If a sentence is singular, change it to the plural; if it is plural, change it to the singular.

The snow storm was intense; it left the city covered in a metre of snow. During the storm, there was a bad car accident as the car driver was unable to see the road ahead of him and slid into the path of an oncoming vehicle. A chain reaction accident occurred as one car and truck after another skidded into the pile up.

Each student should write a slightly different answer.

PEGGY: You have the plurals, but there is a verb tense issue (last verb) and a spelling error;-)
ALEXEY:You start well, there is a word that needs to be made plural (2nd sentence), and there is no such phrase as "ones after others."

PEGGY; I don't know what spelling error I thought I saw--the correct spelling is "occurred"; everything is good now;-)
