Seems to me like you've pretty much written the code out already?
string MainString "String Manipulatin"; 
string CorrectString = MainString.Replace("Manipulatin", "Manipulation"); 
MessageBox.Show("Correct string is : " + CorrectString);

I was missing the left hand side of the str.Replace("&","and");
after making change to the code as

str mystring = str.Replace("&", "and");

It was fine.
