Beings are the consumers of lives.

the first three are fine. On most booking websites, the 24 hour format is more common, where you don't have to use AM and PM.

comment Essay on “Human resource should explore not exploit the nation”
We cannot explain that. It's a broad topic and can cover many things.

comment “Wait one hour for her” versus “wait for one hour for her”
Both are grammatical. The first one is more common. The second one is less common and a bit archaic. I agree with @HotLicks, "a" is more idiomatic.

@Robusto I think what he means is a text-to-speech service or tool.

comment How do I pronounce my surname?
Pronunciation is a strange thing in English. In many cases, spelling doesn't set the pronunciation of words. It's more how different people from different places say a particular word.

comment How much like us they are or how much they are like us?
Don't think so. The structure above should be fine in most circumstances. I don't see anything wrong with your example above. It just doesn't sound very idiomatic to me. "... how much she looks like her mother..." sounds more natural.

comment How much like us they are or how much they are like us?
Sounds off to my ear. That's not idiomatic; not sure if it's grammatically correct.

comment How much like us they are or how much they are like us?
Both are correct. I don't really see much difference between them but if you were picky, the first one would imply that emphasis is given to looks while in the second one it's "they" then the looks.
