comment Possessive Pronouns - they made the final decision vs they made their final decision
Either is correct, but the sentences mean different things.

comment Is it considered plagiarism to not place quotation marks following a copied sentence if there are footnotes to indicate the source?
This is not a question on the nuts and bolts of the English language, but about how to represent a quotation.

comment Usage difference between * ' * and * " *?
@Tim That's because what is called "British" here isn't really British. Most Brits use double quotes first, because it makes sorting possessive apostrophes easier.

comment more Vs much. where we use with 'more' and 'much'
Does a dictionary not answer this? more | much What is not clear?

comment Does “Please verify your address” mean what I think it means?
@PhilippNagel It looks like that's happened, since that is in the dictionary already.

comment “I have to go to places” - The word “to” is repeating here. What is right way to say it?
What does "I have to travel to native" mean? Native is either an adjective which requires a noun, or a countable noun meaning "someone who was born in the place we're already talking about". Note that "I have to go places" is a set phrase which means that it can't really be compared to anything else [let alone a phrase which is unidiomatic in itself].

comment What's the difference between 'natural selection' and 'evolution'?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about evolutionary theory and not about the nuts and bolts of the English language.

comment What's the difference between 'natural selection' and 'evolution'?
Natural selection and evolution are both on-topic on Biology but this question as it stands will be far too broad even for a site with a particular focus.

comment Names that are simultaneously verbs (and preferably don't share their etymology)?
This is a list question, where every answer will be just as correct as any other. Please see english.stackexchange.com/help/dont-ask. There are hints on that page about "good subjective" questions.

comment Generic term for either debit or credit
Since each is an entry, please say why "ledger entry" is too vague. What else could it be but an entry signifying either a debit or a credit?

Actually, it isn't. Read my answer there and all the comments.
