Correct spelling, explanation: when adding suffix -ing to a verb ending with -y we do not omit y in a final word. It does not change to any other letter either. Therefore when we add -ing to the verb carry we receive carrying.
Carring is incorrect because y was left out when it shouldn’t. Carrying is the correct form.
Definition of carrying:
verb, present participle form of carry; to hold or bear something
Are you carrying something heavy? Do you need help?
What is the brand of the bag that the girl is carrying?
Incorrect spelling, explanation:
carring is incorrect, because the base verb here is carry. Carry ends with y, so after adding -ing we receive the form carrying, y shouldn’t be omitted or changed, so carrying is the correct spelling.
