    A region required a major concept that identified problems and society basic needs based on a risk assessment by an independent institution.

      1. I’m not sure a ‘concept’ can ‘identify’ something. Isn’t it something or someone that identifies a concept. 2. ‘required’ is often used as a noun modifier: ‘required risk assessment’. 3. ‘society’ is not used to pre-modify a noun – instead ‘social’ is used: ‘basic social needs’. For post-modification use ‘basic needs of society’. 4. It might be easier to fit your 5 words into more than one sentence!😉

      Couple of things..

      cooperated – past simple tense, needs past simple time expression. Unless you’re talking about something that is always true – in that case use present simple tense.

      must + v1

    The context of planning budget in legislation is about specific issues in health and education, almost 50 percent.

      Very well done Anak Murid! A couple of comments..
      1. ‘almost 50 percent’ doesn’t cohere very well with the rest of the sentence. Next time try using either a relative clause or a participle phrase: ‘which represent almost 50 percent.’; ‘representing almost 50 percent.’
      2. The sentence might make more sense with ‘budget’ as the subject: “Budget planning in legislation is about specific issues in the context of health and education…”

      Try another? 😉
