Incorrect spelling, explanation:
becomming is a mistaken spelling because there is no reason to double m when we add suffix -ing. In the base verb become the last letter is e, not m, so the consonant can’t double, however, e is skipped (as usual in the case of -ing suffix) and we receive the form becoming. Therefore the correct spelling is becoming.
Correct spelling, explanation: this word should be spelled with one m because the base verb become ends with e. This vowel is skipped in case of adding -ing ending (giving us the form becoming), but m isn’t doubled, because it’s not at the end of the word. Therefore becoming is the correct form, and
becomming is a mistake.

Hello there! I just would like to give you a huge shout out for the great knowledge you have got right here on the guide. I’ll be returning to your web site for more in the future.
I was just seeking this information for a while. After 5 minutes of constant searching, finally I got it in this site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this type of informative websites in top of the results. Generally the top web sites are mostly useless pages.
