Incorrect spelling, explanation: this word is a misspelling.
Carring would be correct if the base word ended with a vowel, e, however, carry is the base and it ends with y. In such case, we do not change or skip y, so the correct form is carrying. Carrying is thus the only correct form.
Correct spelling, explanation: carrying is the correct spelling because the root word is carry, which ends with y. If we want to add -ing ending we don’t have to change anything in the root word in this case. We would change y to i in case of adding for example suffix -ed, but not in this case. Therefore
carring is incorrect and carrying is the correct form.
