Incorrect spelling, explanation:
ocassions in an incorrect form, because s shouldn’t be doubled but c should (occasions). This is because of Latin occasionem (which is spelled with two c’s because it comes from another word and a prefix that doubled the consonant). Therefore the correct form is occasions.
Correct spelling, explanation: the correct form of this word is occasions – with double c and single s. This is due to Latin origin of the word – occasionem (in which double c occurs due to the word emerging from a different word with a prefix, which doubled the consonant).
Ocassions is at the same time mistaken spelling, and occasions is the correct one.
