Notice the little mark that looks like an apostrophe (') after the first syllable in most of these? That's there to indicate that the first syllable is to be stressed or pronounced a bit more loudly than the other syllable. When used as a verb, though, in its past ...

1 and 5 are the best, but you'd need to remove the comma in 5. All the rest are technically correct, but are wordy and/or awkward.
August 27, 2016

English
1 and 3 are best. All the rest are wordy or incorrect. In 4 and 5, the pronoun "it" seems to be referring to the photo (singular), not the the comments (plural).
August 27, 2016

English
1 and 2 -- the preposition you need is "to" not "on." 3 is the best; 6 (without the comma) is next best. All the rest are wordy and/or awkward.
August 27, 2016

English
1, 2 and 3 all mean the same thing. And yes, the comma before "while" is not needed. 4, 5, and 6 all mean the same thing. And yes, the comma before "while" is not needed.

English
Sentence 4 is very awkward, but the others are fine. The two actions in each sentence are simultaneous, yes. I wouldn't use #4.
August 26, 2016

English
Yes, 1 and 2 mean approximately the same thing. 3 - 6 mean the same thing, yes, and there are two actions happening at the same time. Sentence 6, however, is wordy. You don't need the words "at the same time." The meaning is clear without them.

I don't think any of these are good study habits. A is positive, while the others are negatives, but I have known many students with positive attitudes who didn't have good study habits. What does your text say?
August 26, 2016

English
2, 3, 5, and 6 are the best sentences here. You're right that "as" has too many meanings. It's best to skip it and use one of the others, whichever makes sense in your sentence.

August 26, 2016

English
1, 2, and 3 mean the same thing. 4 is incorrect. Having "being" and "walking" right next to each other is incorrect, plus it's wordy! Read up on the use of participles as adverbs.

All the sentences are fine. They'd be better if you added "Last night" or some other phrase that indicates past tense.

Is "read" in these sentences intended to be the past tense? (pronounced "red")
August 26, 2016

English
The tenses are off in #4, but the others are okay. #5 is a little strange; usually reasons come before results. Because indicates a reason, and therefore the timing is dependent on the sense of the sentence. When indicates a time -- also dependent on the sentence of the ...
