First question:

I just don’t really sure why the position of “being” in the sentences below that should be put after the CE Election Day, because somebody told me that we should put V+ing after the word “after”( just like the sentences two), and is the sentence three that have the same meaning as 1 and 2?

 

1. After the CE Election Day “being” released, the CE shall start regulating the schedule for the exact time and period of the CE candidate nomination, added the CE.

 

2. After “being” released the CE Election Day, the CE shall start regulating the schedule for the exact time and period of the CE candidate nomination, added the CE.

 

3. After the CE Election Day is released, the CE shall start regulating the schedule for the exact time and period of the CE candidate nomination, added the CE.

 

Second Question:

What is the meaning between one another as follows?

1.          I can reach as early as October 3

2.          I can reach as earlier as October 3

3.          I can reach as earliest as October 3

Question 1

These sentences don't make much sense actually… Is the CE, whoever that is, talking? What is "added the CE?" Then the it is unclarified if the voting is being talked about or the results for the voting. Anyway… from what I am seeing "being" and "is" aren't correct. I think you want to use "are."

 

Question 2

Uhhh, actually these aren't correct either. Unless you are talking about memories or something else I wouldn't be able to understand out of context. ... You ask really hard questions to answer. =P

 

I am sorry I couldn't help you more.
