(i) In the accident one of my arms broke and my legs bruised.

(ii) The people who had been raising slogans against the government for many hours wanted increase in their salaries.

Cattles is a collective noun so you don't need to use ten with it. It'll be "cattles were grazing in the field"

sarmad bukhari is on a distinguished road
Default punctuation answer

A Quaker was one day walking on a country road. He was suddenly met by a highwayman pointing a pistol. The robber exclaimed, "Your money or your life!"
"My friend," said the Quaker, "I cannot deliver my money, for I should be helping thee in evildoing. However, exchange is lawful and I will give thee my purse for the pistol." The robber agreed. On receiving the purse, the Quaker at once held the pistol at the robbers head and said, "Now, friend, give me back my purse back or the weapon may go off."
"Fire," said the robber. "There is no powder in the pistol!"

Well, after going through this thread, i'll have to admit that 95% people didn't comprehend the the precis. Most of them have written such funny titles e.g. "Haste makes waste" and "In defence of Laziness". I am sorry for this but i could not restrain myself giving my views. The Precis was not in defence of laziness nor it was about doing things slowly. The writter was saying that whatever is happening in world is due to those people who are doing things but do not know what to do and what not to do. Read the first sentence:

"All the evil in this world is brought about by persons who are always up and doing, but do not know when they ought to be up and nor what they ought to be doing"

Now read the sixth sentence:

"There is still plenty of energy in the world(there never were more fussy people about), but most of it is simply misdirected."


Again read the second last line:

"Thus, every now and then, certain religious sects hold conferences; but though there are evils abroad that are mountains high, though the fate of civilization is still doubtful, the members who attend these conferences spend their time condemning the length of ladies' skirts and the noisiness of dance bands."

So the main contention of the author was that people are not doing what they are supposed to do. And he adds, such people if do nothing then we will be happier than our current situation.

My precis title was:
"Misdirected Human Energies"

Regards.
