*NUMBER CHANGE*

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

The view from my window is quite extraordinary. It is one of the lake with a mountain in the background. On the shore of the lake, I can see a deer grazing. The wind rustles through a tree and a leaf falls to the ground.

The view from my windows is quite extraordinary. There are multiple lakes with mountains in the background. On the shores of the lakes, I can see some deer grazing. The wind rustles through the trees and leaves fall on the ground.

Oh, my! I think this is an extremely hard sentence to change for me :( I hope most of the stuff is done correctly :)

I wasn't sure about the 'background' vs. 'backgrounds', but decided to leave it singular. ([countable usually singular] - the area that is behind the main thing that you are looking at, especially in a picture)

The views from our windows are quite extraordinary. They are two lakes with two mountains in the background. On the shore of lakes, we can see some deers grazing. The wind rustles through some trees and some leaves fall to the ground.

Well done, everyone!

Cecilia, be careful to maintain subject-verb agreement.

Olena, you were right to keep "background" singular.

Yu Jin, watch out for nouns that have no plural form: "deer" is both the singular and plural.
