I received an email from your friend:

From: JK123@fmail.com

To: hehehaha@fmail.com

Title: A passage

Body:

Today, i went to the pharmacy. I asked the staff, "How much is

a bottle of alcohol? I has not much at home." The staff replied,

"$10 per 100mL, not many money needed." So I decided to buy

2L of alohol.

After I went back home, Jeff called me, "Does you have any

alcohol? I want some." I replied, "Your have already gotten

1L of alcohol from me! I don't wan to give you any more alcohol!

I have only same alcohol left at home after giving you the 1L!"

I was puzzled. Could anyone help me to find out why my friend sent me the email?

First, detect the words in the passage that need to be edited in order for the passage to make sense:

Today, i to went to the pharmacy. I asked the staff, "How much is

a bottle of alcohol? I has not much at home." The staff replied,

"$10 per 100mL, not many money needed." So I decided to buy

2L of alohol.

After I went back home, Jeff called me, "Does you have any

alcohol? I want some." I replied, "Your have already gotten

1L of alcohol from me! I don't wan to give you any more alcohol!

I have only same alcohol left at home after giving you the 1L!"

Then, edit the words:

Today, I went to the pharmacy. I asked the staff, "How much is

a bottle of alcohol? I have not much at home." The staff replied,

"$10 per 100mL, not much money needed." So I decided to buy

2L of alcohol.

After I went back home, Jeff called me, "Do you have any

alcohol? I want some." I replied, "You have already gotten

1L of alcohol from me! I don't want to give you any more alcohol!

I have only some alcohol left at home after giving you the 1L!"

Put the words into a list, and you have the answer:

I Have Much Alcohol Do You Want Some

    $\begingroup$ Don't forget the 'your' between your fourth and fifth words! :) You might also consider the lower-case 'i' in the first line... $\endgroup$ – Stiv Jul 19 at 16:33
