Test your proofreading skills with Mistake Monday

MISTAKE MONDAY for June 4: Can YOU spot what’s wrong?

Can you spot what’s wrong in the Mistake Monday image below? Please post your answer as a comment.

MM space comma

I post these challenges to raise awareness of the importance of proofreading.

I often recommend my “read out loud” method for finding mistakes, but that wouldn’t help you to find the error that caught my eye in this week’s Mistake Monday.

    Thanks, Russell!

    What caught my eye:
    1. Extra blank spaces
    2. Non-parallel construction: accounting/underlines instead of accounting/underlining
    3. “it’s” doesn’t seem right
    4. There should be a comma after “accounting”
