How should we open and close an email?
The answer depends on the context. If we are emailing a friend, our language should be very different from emailing a business client or contacting a business. If it is a friend or close family, we can use casual openings and closings. Here are some examples. Opening: Hey, Hi. Closing: Talk to you soon, bye, catch you later, all the best. If it is a business and someone you know professionally, you can use a semi-formal style. Opening: Dear (Name), Hello (name). Closing: Yours sincerely, thank you in advance, all the best. If we don't know the person, it's a business situation or the person is very important, we use a formal style. Opening: To whom it may concern, (we don't know the name), Dear Sir / Madam, Dear Mr / Miss (name). Closing: Yours faithfully (you don't know their name), kind regards, yours sincerely.

Which is correct: "We should give the job to whoever has the most experience." or "We should give the job to whoever has the most experience."?
Whoever and whoever are both pronouns ( a word that replaces the name of someone or something). Other pronouns are I, he, she, me, his, and her, etc. Whoever is a subject pronoun (A subject does an action or performs the verb. For example, I (subject) eat (action) pizza.). Whomever is an object pronoun (An object has an action happen to it. For example, I eat (action) pizza (object).). In the question, we need a subject. ( ...SUBJECT has the most experience.). This means the subject pronoun. The correct answer is, "We should give the job to WHOEVER has the most experience."

Is it correct to see 476 as the final collapse of the Roman Empire?
476 is seen as the year the Roman Empire collapsed when the Germanic Leader Odocer entered Rome and deposed Romulus Augustulus. This indeed was a defining moment but it doesn't; completely mark the end of the Roman Empire. Upon taking power, Odoacer placed himself under the rule of the Eastern Roman Empire. Though this was largely symbolic, it shows he wished to continue under a power that carried on the laws and traditions of the Roman Empire. Over time the Eastern Empire would evolve to become more distinct from the Western Empire, centering its culture more in Hellenic culture and developing the Eastern Orthodox Church. Conversely, Rome had become far less influential in the Roman Empire even before its fall in 476. Under the rule of Constantine I, Constantine, in the Eastern Roman Empire was designated the capital of the Empire. Therefore we can see 476 as a culmination of a shift of power to the Eastern Roman Empire that continued long after Rome's fall. It of course later evolved new norms and traditions different from those practiced in the West.
