Yes, showing some examples like that would be really helpful.

I think the GMAT doesn't want to test you on the nuances of grammar. Rather it tests you on your logical and aptitude skills even through sentence correction. So the focus should be on things like eliminating options through POE etc.

770!! Nice... Congrats

Any advice for me to improve, I'm getting around 700(my latest score 710 on GMAT prep- quant 49,verbal 38)
And how many days or times did u practise the whole exam(AWA + IR with Q&V) before u gave the GMAT?

I think that 700 is a good score and honestly, +-30 deviation will always remain on any test. You just need to work on some areas a bit and you should be good to go. I think somewhere between 6-8 tests should put you in a really comfortable spot.
