Question:

What is the best way to organizing bulk data without sorting columns and rows by hand independently and manually?

Inactive
Peter S.
Answer:

Insert a pivot table to be able to better organize the data you want. This can be done fairly easily, but some work may need to be done to the data in order to get the data to be accessible in a pivot table and easier to work with.

Question:

With regards to ecology, why does species diversity increase as drainage area increases in river systems?

Inactive
Peter S.
Answer:

As the drainage area increases, it implies that the total aquatic area also increases. A larger aquatic area will typically span a greater amount of land, thus encompassing a larger amount of habitat heterogeneity and environmental conditions that result in more ecological groups, thus allowing the system to host more species with distinct requirements.

Subject: ACT

Question:

How should your approach in the reading comprehension portion of the ACT change if you are not a fast reader so that you can maximize the number of points you get?

Answer:

You have two options here. You can either read several of the passages very in-depth to assure you receive total points on those sections (I would not recommend this strategy as much as the next one), OR you can read the questions first, and skim through the paragraph looking for key phrases or ideas that can help you answer those questions, skipping ones that are not easily answered and returning to them later. This is a skill I can help you develop, as I honed my skills at this when I took the ACT and ended up with a 36 on the reading comprehension section!
