Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: the double -r in this word is unnecessary because the correct form – around – is based on the adjective round, which is spelled with a single -r consonant. There is no need to double it when creating an adverb. Arround is not correct and we must stick to the version around.

Correct spelling
