Explain what the mistake is in these sentences:?
A: should be "Good morning. What can I get for you?" ("Good morning" is a complete sentence. "What can I get you" is missing the "for" since "you" is an indirect object, not a direct object.) B: should be "Would you mind giving me a packet of Benson and Hedges?" or "May I have a packet of Benson and Hedges?" (too many passive voice phrases)

Can you explain to me the errors of this English sentence?
This feels like a run on sentence to me. I remember being taught in elementary school that if you use “and then” to try to connect two thoughts, you create a run on sentence. So, I think the sentence is missing the correct punctuation and conjunctions to make it flow grammatically.The simplest way I can think of to correct the sentence is: I spent hours writing that report and checking all the information was correct; and then without thinking, I pressed the delete button.All I think you have to do is add a semicolon and a comma. The semicolon acts like a comma and conjunction or a simple period would in the position I have put it in. The comma is a way to separate the dependant clause from the independent clause (or main idea) for the second half of the sentence. So, you now have a single sentence that is no longer a run on.Stylistically however, I would change the sentence to: After spending all that time writing and making sure every detail of my report was correct, I accidentally pushed the delete button.Depending on my mood and whom the sentence is directed to, I would add emojis like these to the end: \U0001f62d\U0001f631\U0001f635.
What is the meaning of these sentences. Pease explain!?
(1) He is after me. This sentence can mean two things. First, it can mean that he is chasing you or trying to get you. Second, it can mean that he comes next, as in order or in a line. (2) He is behind me. Two variations of meaning here as well. First, it can mean that he literally is behind you. Second, it can also mean that he is after you in order, order being 1, 2, 3, etc., similar to "he is after me." Third, it can mean he is supporting you, as in "He is behind this activity."
