Incorrect spelling, explanation: this spelling is incorrect because the last consonant in submit should be doubled (submitted) when we add a suffix to the word (according to the rule we double the last consonant if a word ends with a consonant-vowel-consonant combination). Therefore submitted is the correct form, while
submited is a misspelling.
Correct spelling, explanation: the correct form is submitted, because the core word is submit, therefore a word ending with the consonant-vowel-consonant combination.
