Correct spelling

occurred

Correct spelling, explanation: occurred is a past participle of a verb occur. Past participles are created by adding a suffix -ed to the verbs, although there are some other rules. When there is a monosyllabic verb ending with a vowel and a consonant, the last consonant has to be doubled. Hence, the past participle od occur is occurred. That makes the form occured incorrect because there is one consonant r missing.
