What is the major difference between a .com website and a .gov website, and how does this difference affect the quality of the information offered by each?
A .com website is for a commercial enterprise (e.g., a business that is selling something), and a .gov is for an official government entity (e.g., nih.gov is the website for the National Institutes of Health which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and it provides information on public health issues in the U.S.). A .com is a for-profit enterprise and, as such, any information it offers must be weighed in light of this. A .gov website is not only not-for-profit but it is an official governmental website, and therefore it is safe to presume that the information contained therein is valid.
What is the difference between adjectives and adverbs? Please give examples of both in use.
Adjectives modify a noun or a pronoun . Adverbs modify a verb, adverb, or adjective. Example of an adjective: This is an interesting presentation. Interesting is the adjective, and it is modifying the noun presentation. Example of an adverb: She is running slowly. Slowly is the adverb, and it is modifying the verb running.
