Very good informative text! Minor revisions with grammar with verbs such as differences between were or was.

Hi Tehreem,

 

Very good and insightful!

 

Please find my corrections in a different colour (I've just left the sentences that needed some help, the rest seemed fine to me!)

 

If the entry fee to all museums was free of charge, more people would be interested to visit them.

If cheaper housing had been built 10 years ago, the number of homeless people would have been decreased. wouldn't be as high / would have decreased.

 

If young people were  forced (I would use "encouraged" more, forced feels too strong for this sentence) to travel before going to university, they would become confident and outspoken.

If the airplane had never been invented, many places would not have been discovered.  - I like the correction by my colleague above, but I also think this sentence works well as it is

If young people were forced to travel before going to university/college (it sounds more natural to say, "...going to a university," OR ("...going to college"), they would become confident and outspoken.

If the airplane had never been invented, many places would not have been discovered.

If more people buy second-hand clothes, the waste produced by clothes will decline by 50%.

Hi Tereem,

Great effort!

Please see some of my comments

1. interested to visit them. - interested in visiting them (In English, you are interested IN doing something)

2. they would become confident and outspoken. - they would become more (suggestion) confident and outspoken.

3. If entry fee to all museums was free of charge, more people would be interested to visit them. - If entry fees to all museums were free of charge, more people would be interested in visiting them=

4. If capital punishment was made legal in many countries, the rate of violent crime would fall dramatically. - If capital punishment were made legal in many countries, the rate of violent crime would fall dramatically. (Use were if the state of being you are describing is in no way the current reality. This is true whenever a hypothetical situation is expressed, for example.)

5. If the airplane had never been invented - If airplanes/aeroplanes(U.K. spelling) had never been invented.

6. If more people buy second-hand clothes, the waste produced by clothes will decline by 50%. - If more people bought second-hand clothes, the waste produced by clothes would decline by 50%.
