Simply Put, I have the following(similar) sentences:

Transducer Introduction.
An introduction to Transducer/Sensor.
A methodology to meet the deadlines.
Introduction to XYZ.

All of these are marked GREEN by Microsoft's grammar check. Those Green lines are really Annoying . Whats the proper way to write these Fragments so that the Grammar Check spares me.

Update

I learned from some answers that Microsoft's Grammar Check is way too sensitive. And it has a habit of annoyance. Still, is there some way I can solve the problem?

Is there some way you can solve the problem? Sure: Turn off grammar check. For years, this was my first action when starting to use Word on a new computer. Nowadays, though, grammar check seems to be off by default. –  Andreas Blass Aug 13 '13 at 5:20

At least one of your fragments is an acceptable title already and doesn't need revision. To keep a particular title or section from being grammar checked,

Select the text you want skipped, then, double-click the language indicator in the status bar (or choose Tools - Language - Set Language), and enable “Do not check spelling or grammar”. [Herb Tyson, in article Disable spell check section]

Regarding the titles shown: Use plural forms of transducer and sensor; remove the article before deadlines; replace / with and. A period is not necessary at the end of a title.

One more question ! This technique does 'cover' the green lines on my PC, will it still work in my friends PC ? I use docx format. –  vvy Aug 12 '13 at 15:30
    
@vvy, I don't know. –  jwpat7 Aug 12 '13 at 15:31
    
That's Alright ;-) ! I will check it myself. Thanks buddy! –  vvy Aug 12 '13 at 15:33
    
@vvy, the link mentioned says (or implies) you can turn off grammar check for individual styles. If you make a separate style for titles I'd expect it and its characteristics to transfer with documents that use it – but again, I don't know. –  jwpat7 Aug 12 '13 at 15:35
    
In English, titles, headings, etc. do not have to be complete sentences - and therefore a grammar check may object to them. –  TrevorD Aug 12 '13 at 17:56
