Consider the below sentence. Is it grammatically correct or incorrect? "The nurse has to keep organized for their shift."
Most writing styles allow the singular "they," so if you do not know the preferred pronouns for the nurse you are writing about, using "their" in this instance is correct. If you know their preferred pronouns, you can use those in place of "their." For example: "The nurse has to keep organized for her shift." "The nurse has to keep organized for his shift."

What design principle can help you to meet your assignment deadlines?
A correct answer to this question is "backward design." To follow backward design principles means to think about a future goal and to determine the steps between yourself and the goal that must be accomplished to meet the end goal. For example, if I have a college essay due in three weeks, submitting my essay is the end goal. But, what steps do I need to take before I reach my end goal? I might need to determine my paper topic, gather peer-reviewed research, or create a literature review matrix, among other things. Adding both small and large tasks to a list of steps that must happen before meeting my end goal will help me to feel like I'm making progress towards my end goal.
What is the correct order of adjective type, if you have many types of adjectives describing a noun? a. The 12 eager, large, brown, Texan cows b. The brown, Texan, eager, 12 large cows c. The Texan large, brown, 12, eager cows
The correct answer is A. An often overlooked rule of the English language is adjective order. This rule is often overlooked because it comes naturally to native English speakers who have grown to know adjective order through years of speaking the language. When considering a subject to which many adjectives have been asigned, like in the above examples, your adjectives must follow this order: Quantity or number Quality or opinion Size Age Shape Color Proper adjective (often nationality, other place of origin, or material) Purpose or qualifier The 12 (quantity or number) eager (quality), large (quality), brown (color), Texan (proper adjective) cows
