What do you mean by "tough"?
November 16, 2014

English
Right! "Tone" is all about how the author feels about his topic. Is he happy? resentful? curious? satisfied? what? So ... how does he feel about this house if he stays in it through the winter? Remember ... this house is in Massachusetts!

You are right about the meaning of 'trick or treat'!! 1 and 2 mean the same thing, yes.

All are correct and all mean approximately the same thing. The only slight difference is in 3, in which 'will' means 'never, never, never'!!

3 is not a standard phrasing; use 2. In 1 and 2, 'certain' means 'specific' or 'particular.' In 4, 'certain' means 'sure.'

1 and 2 are very strangely phrased. Use 3. 5 and 6 are strangely phrased. Use 4.
