How do I change my profile email address?

Hi admins, I went into my profiles - account settings page but I can't change my email address (the field is not in textbox so I don't know how/where to make the changes). My existing email on profile is no longer valid.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks force5. Your explanation is very good. But I have some other questions about infinitive and passive voice. In your example, you used "More cars were produced to increase efficiency" and you said this is ok. My question is, in this case, is there a clear actor or subject for the infinitive or ...

can be easy if you pick up on the idiom "made up for", so only D is correct.
"made up by" means something is composed of...
