Explain the difference between Wernicke's and Broca's aphasia.
Wernicke's aphasia is the potential result of damage to the Wernicke's area, which is located in the upper left temporal lobe of the brain. Wernicke’s area is the center for speech comprehension. Damage to this area would limit the brain's ability of processing/understanding language, but not speech production, thus: Wernicke's Aphasia. On the other hand, Broca's Aphasia is the potential result of damage to the Broca's area, which is located in the frontal lobe of the brain. Broca's area is responsible for speech production and articulation. Therefore damage to this area of the brain would impair one's ability to speak but not their ability to comprehend speech, thus: Broca's Aphasia. Overall, the difference between Wernicke's aphasia and Broca's aphasia is that one results in damage to speech comprehension, and the other results in damage to speech production.

How do I craft the perfect personal statement?
Personal statements are just that, they are PERSONAL. A good personal statement is one that shows the admissions team who you are as an individual. With that said, do not write an essay trying to emulate someone else, or trying to showcase what you think the admissions team wants to hear/see. Everybody is different, and your essay is about you, so use what makes you unique and think carefully about what aspect of yourself you want to share with the college that you are applying to.
Which pronoun would correctly fill in the blank in the following sentence? Either rap songs or pop songs are my favorite types of music because of _____ good rhythms. A. they're B. it's C. they D. its E. their
The correct answer is E because the prompt is referring to two genres of music (rap and pop), therefore a plural pronoun is needed for the sentence, which immediately eliminates choices B and D (which are both singular pronouns). The word "their" is the correct plural pronoun because it is the possessive case of the pronoun "they". Another good trick to answering a question like this, is to try filling in the blank with each answer choice and then read the sentence out loud, you will probably notice right away that some of the choices simply do not sound right at all.
