What is the most important step in the life cycle of information?
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.
Was Robert Frost a Romantic poet?
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.
What is the difference between "who" and "whom"?
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.
