    2. "Game point" means that a team is one point away from winning. It is used in many sports where you play to a fixed number of points. Tennis, volleyball, and racquetball are examples of such games. While basketball is normally a timed sport in organized play, casual street variants are often played to a point. So you may be playing a game where it is "first to 15 points wins" and someone has "14 points," someone would yell "Game point!" so that the winning team is motivated to put in extra effort to win and the losing team is motivated to put in extra effort to catch up. If Derek had called "offense," which is a type of foul, he would get to make a free throw from the foul line for an extra point as a penalty to the other team. Since it is "game point," Derek does not want to win that way as it would be anticlimactic, and he wants the satisfaction of beating a team that is playing hard against him. Alternatively, the local game might have had a "house rule" that penalty points cannot be the deciding point of the game, so it would have been a waste of time.

    2. I looked this up and it means to bring to a sudden halt (by stopping the running of the rope). All these terms are naval vocabulary for the old wooden ships. I have been sailing on one of these types of ships. Many areas have replica ships like this for education, recreation, etc. and people (not me!) do learn to sail them, amazingly, just as they were sailed before the modern ships. (But most of them have motors now, too, and are not entirely dependent on sails.) I was taught many of these terms but I have forgotten them all. I don't think most people know what these terms mean, unless you are a sailor, and even then, I am not sure what if all the terms applied to these old ships are the same used for modern sailing.

    2. One of the main reasons for cheating on exams is that sudents are lazy. They are always happy to cheat on exams. Another cause is the sense of shame that can result from not cheating. Also, peer influence is one of the most important things in their lives. One example of this is if their friends...or copy from somebody. They don't want to disrupt the relationship... Parents always want their children to get good jobs. In my opinion, hard work is really important...

    2. Well, there are some grammatical mistakes here and there, but I think the most important thing is that you should avoid repeating the words "cheating", "studying" and "students". "They can get happy" would mean a possibility, right? I think you could use "they may even get happy". I don't think "notes" can be used instead of "grades", so you could just say "low ones", because you already mentioned the grades before, but I think you could say "they cheat on exams in order to avoid getting low grades, otherwise they could even be ashamed of the ones they got" or sth like this. I didn't get what you wanted to say by "the parents always check not for their children's future life". All in all, I think you should try rewriting it paying attention to those mistakes. It's really good for starters! Keep up!

    1. Example sentences
    2. "A comparison between my maths teacher and geometry teacher reveals some surprising similarities." Good. "First, both are logical." This sounds a bit weird. I would prefer to say "First, both think logically" or "First, both are logical people." "For example my maths teacher, Anil, like solving problems." Use a comma after "For example." And "like solving problems" should be "likes solving problems" or "likes to solve problems." "Similarly, my geometry teacher, Kaan, is helps solve difficult problems for us." The word "is" is not needed. "For example of this, if you don't solve maths problem, you can ask the question." You need "an" after "For", like "For an example of this." You can also say "As an example of this." The rest needs a little fixing: "For an example of this, if you can't solve a maths problem, you can ask him for help." "Both Anil and Kaan helps for you." Try saying instead "Both Anil and Kaan are helpful." or "Both Anil and Kaan are willing to help you." "Secondly, not only my maths teacher but also my geometry teacher go to gym." The "not only my baths teacher but also my geometry teacher" isn't needed and sounds strange as we already know you're talking about them. You should simply say "Secondly, they both...". Need a "the" before gym. "Secondly, they both go to the gym." "Anil and Kaan look very much alike." Sounds good. "Anil is as tall as Kaan." Sounds good. "They both has a moustache and a beard." The word "both" is plural, so use "have" instead of "has." "They both have a moustache and a beard." "If your teachers has a really good sense of humour, life becomes joyful." The word "teachers" is plural, so use "have" instead of "has". Next, saying "a really good sense of humour" implies that your teachers collectively have the same sense of humour. If you make it plural, you are saying that they each have their own. Lastly, I would recommend saying "more joyful" instead of "joyful" alone. Here's what I would say overall: "If your teachers have good senses of humour, your life becomes more joyful." The above fixes your sentences, but it doesn't help the flow of the paragraph. Here's how I would rewrite the entire thing. A comparison between my maths teacher and geometry teacher reveals some surprising similarities. First, both think logically. For example, my maths teacher, Anil, likes solving problems. Similarly, my geometry teacher, Kaan, helps us solve difficult problems. As an example of this, if you aren't able to solve a maths problem, you can ask him for help. As a result, both Anil and Kaan are quite helpful. Secondly, both of them regularly go to the gym and look very much alike. For example, they are about the same height and each have a moustache and a beard. If your teachers have really good senses of humor, your life becomes more joyful. In conclusion, they are both really good people. Because of this, I feel lucky everyday.

    2. Though both are acceptable, I would say that "the sentence above" is more natural and common (and correct). "above" is usually considered a preposition and not an adjective. When writing "the above sentence", the writer is forcing "above" to be an adjective. It works, though the prepositional usage is more common, I believe.
