How do you conjugate the verb "comer" (to eat) in the imperfect tense?
yo comía tú comías él/ella/usted comía nosotros comíamos vosotros comíais ellos/ellas/ustedes comían
Which of the following sentences are free of grammatical errors? A) Sally purchased alot of fruit at the store yesterday. B) Do you want to share the cake with Randy and I? C) Andie is a person that likes to paint. D) I wanted to wear my old jeans, but they were too loose on me.
A) Wrong: The word "alot" is not one word. It is actually two words, as in "a lot". B) Wrong: The sentence should say "Randy and me". A way to test this is by removing the other person's name, and test to see if "me" or "I" sounds better in the sentence by itself. C) Wrong: When you are describing a person, you should say that "She is a person who likes to paint". Use "that" when you are describing objects D) Correct!

What is the difference between mitigation and adaptation?
Mitigation is when a group reduces the causes and risks of potential negative events, whereas adaptation is when a group reduces the negative impact of events that can no longer be prevented. An example of mitigation is reducing carbon emissions. An example of adaptation is investing in infrastructure that won't be hit as hard by climate change.
