Incorrect spelling, explanation: this spelling is incorrect according to the rule, saying that if a word ends with e, this e is skipped when adding -ing suffix to it.
Replaceing is therefore incorrect, and the correct form is replacing. Replace + -ing is replacing as e was omitted.
Correct spelling, explanation: replacing is the correct spelling because the root verb here is replace. If a verb ends with a vowel e, in case of adding suffix -ing we have to skip the last e. Therefore replacing is the correct form and
replaceing is incorrect.
