Correct spelling, explanation: this word is a merge of the verb submit and the ending -ing. It was created the right way, with the double -t letter. It’s the only correct spelling, because – according to an important principle – the last (and stressed as well) consonant in a derivative must be doubled if there’s a single vowel before it. You must write down this word as submitting, not

Incorrect spelling, explanation: the right form of this word – submitting – is a derivative of the verb submit. Present participles of English verbs are always formed with the suffix -ing. In this case, we also need to double the -t letter due to the important principle: when there is a single vowel before the last, stressed consonant in a word, we need to double that consonant. Therefore,
submiting is not the correct version.
