Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: puting is an incorrect form because we should double the t when adding a suffix (putting). This is due to the rule, which states that consonant-vowel-consonant endings of the word require such doubling with suffixes. This means that putting is the correct form.

Correct spelling


Correct spelling, explanation: the correct spelling is putting, due to the rule saying that in case of a word ending with the following combination: consonant-vowel-consonant, the last consonant is doubled every time we want to add a suffix. Here, put itself is such a combination, so we doubled t when adding -ing, hence putting. Thus puting is an incorrect form.
