comment Why is the verb used without ā€œ-sā€ in this sentence?
I think this is because it's a future tense. It (the system) will make a better guess. If it was present tense, then the system makes would be correct.

comment What's the meaning of “pass” here?
@listeneva The only context I had at the time was cars, so I thought he might have been using the verb "to pass" another car as a noun. So the number of (practical) passes was the number of times they practiced overtaking. Now that you've added the context of dropping cars from planes, I think this is unlikely.

comment Longest lexicographic English word?
Wikipedia suggests Aegilops as well, but also argues against it as it is Latin and a proper noun. If you accept that argument, then there are a few six letters words: abhors, almost, begins, biopsy, chimps and chintz.

comment Single countable word for trash/garbage
I agree with @HotLicks. Nothing springs to mind and "pieces of trash" is common. You could try "scraps". Does that work for you?
