Are these sentences created by your own?? Becos'I spotted some errors in it!

" That cats "should be "Those cats" - Remember that "those" is the correct plural form for cats.

"One cats " should be "One cat" - For this, u should know the reason behind.

"One cats fell 32 storeys" - To me, I would prefer this sentence to be phrased in this way - "A cat has fallen from 32 storeys."

"In spide of " should be spelt as "in spite of ".

agree with Canadian

Seems the sentences are from one lesson called 'flying cats' in Book Three of  New Concept English.
It is said that cats have nine lives hence some tests are carried out to prove it.

'The belief that cats can survive falls from great heights is supported by the facts.'

Well, if u didn't mentioned the complete sentence, of course, I would think that it does contain errors. Right?

"A cat has fallen (from) 32 storeys.'

Look! I only said that I "would prefer" but never commented that the original sentence is wrong. If u believe that your's is better, that is due to individual preference and it doesn't mean that my sentence is of one grade lower. OK?

Thank you very much.

Everyone have the right to keep his own idea. Because I didn't provide you with the background.  It's my fault. Thank you all.
