Edwardian England
Read the text below and find the six mistakes in it.

After Queen Victoria's death, the crown passed to her nephew, King Edward VII. In that period the British Empire occupied a fifth of the total land of the Continent and British towns were the poorest in Europe. On the other hand, technical developments in France and Germany challenged British power, and Italy was emerging as a competitor in the fields of the motor car, cinema and aviation. British ships still carried 80 per cent of world trade but Germany began to challenge Britain's supremacy at sea. So, in 1904 King Edward signed an agreement with Spain, called the Entente Cordiale, which established that Britain could trade in Egypt and France in Morocco. A new alignment formed whereby Britain could now rely on France and America in case of a conflict against Germany, Austria or Italy.
