What is a thesis statement?
A thesis statement is a sentence or two, usually found in your introduction paragraph, that describes your main argument in your paper. An ideal thesis is concise and tells the reader what to expect from your argument and why it matters.

What is the difference between "their" "there" and "they're"?
"Their" is a possessive adjective, which means that it describes a sense of ownership. For example: Their car was taken into the shop to be fixed. "There" describes location both physically and abstractly. "There" is the opposite of "here," in this case it is describing physical location. For example: The ice cream shop isn't here, its over there." An example of the second, more abstract, use of "there" is: My friends are always there for me when I need them. Finally, "they're" is a contraction of the two words "they" and "are." An example of this is "I look at two cars today, they're both really nice."
What is the difference between using "affect" and "effect" in a sentence?
An "effect" is a result of change, and is a noun. An example of this used in a sentence would be: Rising sea levels is an effect of global warming. "Affect," on the other hand, describes having an effect of someone or something, it is a verb. An example of this used in a sentence would be: Warmer temperatures in the world's oceans are affecting coral reefs at an alarming rate.
