Question:

What is the difference between "their" "there" and "they're"?

Inactive

Answer:

"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."

Question:

What is the difference between using "affect" and "effect" in a sentence?

Answer:

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.
