Incorrect spelling, explaination: according to the rule, in verbs ending with vowel e, this letter is left out when creating the -ing form. Therefore to make a gerund from the verb care we have to throw away the last letter and we receive spelling caring. This is the reason why
careing is an incorrect spelling.
Correct spelling, explaination: the word is a gerund form of the verb care. When a word ends with e and we want to create a gerund form, this vowel is omitted. This is why caring is the correct form and not
careing e is supposed to be left out.
