How do I know when to add an "acento" to a word and when not to?
An "acento" is a little hat we add to some words to make part of the word to sound stronger or louder. There is a single rule that will tell you when to add an "acento" and when not to. -When a word is "aguda", that means that the last syllable is the strongest one (ex. camión) and the word ends in "n", "s", or vowel (a,e,i,o,u) then you add an "acento". -When the word is "grave", that means that the second last syllable is the strongest one (ex. azúcar) and the word does not end in "n", "s", or a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) then you add an "acento". -When the word is "esdrújula", that means that the third last syllable is the strongest one (ex. océano) you always add an "acento". Follow these simple guidelines and it will be much more simple to know when to add and when not to add an "acento".
What are the differences between complementary and supplementary angles? How can I identify them?
Complementary and supplementary angles just differ in how much two angles add up together. Complementary means that two angles together add 90 degrees. C as CORNER = 90 degrees. A 40 degree angle and a 50 degree angle are complementary because together they add up 90 degrees. Supplementary means that two angles together add 180 degrees. S as STRAIGHT = 180 degrees. A 60 degree angle and a 120 degree angle are supplementary because together they add up 180 degrees.
What are the differences between a person that is field dependent and field independent?
Field dependence is a concept of personality that focuses on how much a person needs what is happening around him/her to make decisions and concentrate on the task he/she is doing. Someone that is field independent is someone that DOES NOT NEED his/her environment to complete a task. These people are usually someone that does not care what people say about him/her, focuses on the details (when they dress they use a lot of accessories), and choose majors like psysics, math, fashion, among others. In contrast, someone that is field dependent NEEDS his/her environment to complete a task. These people are more dependent of what people say, they need someone else to tell them its okey to have peace of mind, they are generally more sociable and tend to choose majors like social sciences. Imagine this... a field independent person may work as a bomb handler or a diamond cutting in Tiffanys because they can isolate what they are doing and not get distracted by the noise around them. A field independent will absolutely not even think about being a bomb handler because just the thought of it makes them freak out.
