Question:

What is the most important step in the life cycle of information?

Inactive
Alijah F.
Answer:

This is incredibly subjective. It all depends on what one considers "important." Off the top of my head, I would probably say use/dissemination, because what is the good of information if it is not given out to the people of the world? However, the ability to properly store information is , some might say, equally important. So those would have to be my top two choice: use and storage.

Question:

Was Robert Frost a Romantic poet?

Inactive

Answer:

This is extremely complicated. There is a lot in his poetry that suggests a devotion to nature, like in his poem "The Road Not Taken". But a lot of his poetry also discusses the horrors of nature, the difficulty of childhood and life, and a general lack of lessons to be learned from, so that may lead him to be considered less Romantic and more, perhaps, Modernist. Also, fun fact: people associate Frost with New England, but in actuality, he was born in California.

Question:

What is the difference between "who" and "whom"?

Inactive
Alijah F.
Answer:

Many people say it is the "object" or the "subject" of the sentence, but that is really just far too abstract for me to comprehend. So I learned it this way: If you can answer the question with "he" (i.e., "Who has a pencil?" "HE does."), then you would use WHO. If the answer is "him" (i.e., "With whom are you going" "With HIM."), then WHOM is used.
