What kind of error is in this sentence? Every year, Mathilde travels to France annually.
This is a redundancy error. You will often see this type of question in the grammar section of the SAT, where you will be asked to select a shorter, grammatically correct sentence of the same meaning. Here, we could select "Every year, Mathilde travels to France," or "Mathilde travels to France annually."
Are these sentences correct? * Eliza goes to the store and buys a bottle of milk. * John drinks water and ate chocolate. * Mr. Oliver will write a note and send it by mail.
* Eliza goes to the store and buys a bottle of milk. Yes, the verb "goes" and the verb "buys" are correctly conjugated parallel verbs. Both are in the 3rd person present tense. * John drinks water and ate chocolate. No, this sentence is incorrect. The verb "drinks" and the verb "ate" are not correctly conjugated parallel verbs. "Drinks" is in the 3rd person present tense but "ate" is in the 3rd person past tense. * Mr. Oliver will write a note and send it by mail. Yes, this sentence is correct. The verb "will write" is in the 3rd person future tense. There is an implied "will" prior to "send," meaning that the second verb is also in the 3rd person future tense.

What factors contributed to post-Soviet Russia's hyperinflation in the 1990s?
Russia's hyperinflation in the 1990s was caused by an expansionist monetary policy which sought to address long-term deficiencies in the former state-owned enterprises. In the Soviet era, high-prestige industries like coal, steel, and cement operated at a real deficit, with their products costing more in terms of labor and materials than they were worth. The state subsidized these industries as a domestic and international show of strength. Upon transitioning to capitalism, the state no longer wished to prop up state-owned enterprises and began privatization. New businesses required an influx of capital to begin reforms, but there was a shortage of money. The central bank decided to expand the monetary supply by printing more money, which worked in the short-run but ultimately led to consumer mistrust. Inflation builds upon itself unless a central bank can halt consumers' inflationary expectations, either by anchoring currency to real value or by introducing a new currency.
