Incorrect spelling, explanation:
becomming is an incorrect spelling, because we do not double m in become when we use suffix -ing. Instead it is spelled becoming. Since root verb ends with e, m makes no sense to double, because it is not the last letter. E is skipped because, according to the rule we omit it with suffix -ing. Taking all of these into consideration, becoming is the correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: becoming is the correct form, because it comes from root verb become, which ends with vowel e. In case of e ending, when suffix -ing is added the vowel is omitted. M does not double, because the base word is not becom (it would double in such case). Therefore
becomming is incorrect and the correct form is becoming.
