Question:

What is the difference between the variations of there, their, and they're?

Inactive
Shawnie B.
Answer:

There: When are you going to the mall? I am going there later. In this sentence "there" is referring to a place. Their: When are you going to give them their new sporting outfits? In this question, "their" is meaning a possession of someone, hence the team players. They're: They're coming later this week, you can hold off on the gift baskets. In this statement, "they're" is a combination of they and are, combined as a contraction. (it is best to avoid these when possible in professional essays).

Question:

What type of studying is more effective, reading over your notes or flash cards?

Answer:

Flash cards. This is because flash cards implements active recall and active studying techniques to allow you to determine whether you know the material or not. While reading over notes can be essential, this is passive and can often make you feel as if you know the material when you are reading it, but often forget what you read later on when asked a specific detail.

Question:

Are viruses considered living?

Answer:

No, while this is a very common myth, viruses are in fact not living things. It is important when trying to determine whether something can be deemed living or non-living, that you understand the four tenets that comprise the cell theory. The four tenets state: cells are the most fundamental unit of life, cells have hereditary information (like DNA) that is passed on to other cells, all cells come from preexisting cells, and all organisms are made up of one or more cells. Since a virus is not made up of cells, viruses rely on living cells to multiply. Therefore, this violates rules of the cell theory, and is considered non-living.
