①“Singapore is a small and young country. It's achievements have been significant.”
②“Beside attacking student mobs, the author also criticized the goverment's indulgent attitude.”
两句中各有一个错误，即：“It's”和“Beside”；应该是“ Its”和“Besides”才对。“It's”是“it is”的缩写，“Its”才是所有代名词“它的”。“Beside”是“在旁边”，而“Besides” 才是“除此之外”。
