English Questions and Answers (Q&A)

The seemingly little differences in some English words, especially when it comes to spellings, are a result of the differences in the way some English words are being written and spoken in different countries, places, etc. British and American English is the most used English in the world. And there are some differences in the way some words are spelled both in British and American English. That's why you will see some words with the same meaning but a little difference in their spellings.

The same explanation is what goes for these two words; favorite and favorite. In American English, there is the omission of the letter 'u,' and that is why, out of the two spellings, a favorite is the right spelling in American English. The same thing is applicable to British English; the second spelling (favorite) with the letter 'u' is the right spelling. Other examples are; odor and odor, color, and color.

Would and could are both popularly used English words. Would is the past tense of ‘will’, while could is the past tense of ‘can’. These words are used in sentence context as a past tense, and also as a present tense when making request. It can also be used in some other expressions too, which shall be discussed in this article. ‘Will’ in its own context can be used in referring to what will be done in the future (future tense), while ‘would’ denotes a past tense.


For example; ‘I will read my book every day when I resume for next semester’, and “would” as ‘I would always read my book every day last semester’. ‘Can’ is used in referring to the ability for something to be done, and ‘could’ is the past tense. For example; ‘I train every day so that I can play well on the pitch’, and “could” as ‘I trained every day so that I could play well on the pitch’.

The East Coast and West Coast are terms used to describe the Eastern coastal states and Western coastal states of the United States. In English Grammar, “shall” and “will” are used separately. Will and shall are verbs used to represent the future (to form future tenses). The traditional rules for forming the future tense with “shall” when the subject is first person singular or first person plural.


Example of this: “I shall be in the meeting soon” or “We shall be there soon.” The traditional rules for forming future tense with “will” is when the subject is the second or third person singular or plural – you, he, she, it, and they. For example: “They will come for the meeting.” “She will be at the event.” “You will be in charge of the meeting.”

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

If you have ever tried to learn another language, you will probably need to learn the meaning and ways of conjugating the verb “to be” because that is such a popular verb that is used when speaking, writing and reading.

However, in Italian, two words mean “to be.” They are essere and stare. They are handled differently. To speak Italian fluently, you will need to know when to use essere and stare. Essere means to be or exist and stare means to stay or to be.

Stare is used in sentences about precise locations and idioms. Essere is used in general locations, dates, times, qualities, identities, origins, religions, and physical characteristics, to name a few.

The color of the logo of Apple is lettered C or grey. The company’s logo is a bitten apple that symbolizes knowledge just like the story of Adam and Eve. In this Bible story, originally, mankind is sinless until Adam and Eve took a bite from the tree of knowledge and evil.

The Bible does not say that it is an apple tree but it has become the symbol in mythology for over hundreds of years. One of the former executives of Apple said that their logo symbolizes lust and knowledge. The color grey can be a symbol of technology so overall, the logo signifies the continuous lust to obtain knowledge.

Current English is way different than Old English. The big difference is the spelling and the pronounciation of words. Added vowels and syllables in Old English have been shortened in order to make words easier to say and understand in the new and Modern forms of English. Old English is more descriptive and a good example of that is the writings of the legendary playwright William Shakespeare. Modern English is one that is more a universal language and not just one that would you see mainly in the British Isles and Great Britian itself. Words such as ye in Old English would be your or you in Modern English.

There are all kinds of other words in Old English which have been made simplier and more easy to understand in Modern English. There is some kind of underlying similarity between Old English and Modern English and that is that they are both derivatives of the Germanic languages. The big difference is the way words are written and spoken and in some instances have different meanings.

The correct answer is B. Based on the image provided, the apple is on top or on the book. On is the correct preposition to be used as the indicated location of the apple that is on the surface of the book. If the apple is tucked in between the pages of the book, the correct sentence will be the apple is in the book.

We use the preposition on to indicate the location of object A at the surface of object B. We cannot properly use the apple is near the book because since the apple is directly touching the apple, we can only use either on, in, under or beside depending on its location at the diagram. We will only use the preposition near when the apple and the book do not share the same spot.
