Incorrect spelling, explanation:
garanty may seem correct based on the similarity in pronunciation and the original word, garant in French. It is worth noting, however, that based on English orthography and phonology, guarantee is a much more fitting form, which formed over the time to suit English better and to be more intuitive for English speakers.
Correct spelling, explanation: guarantee can be used both as a noun and a verb. It comes from French garant, however over time, the word underwent several changes in order to assimilate it better with English pronunciation (softer sounds, thus ga became gua and y became ee).
Definition of guarantee:
1. an assurance of something
Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that the weather will be good when we go camping.
1. to assure someone about something they are certain of
I guarantee you will have a lot of fun if you go to the cinema with us.
