Hi CG and Manunkind,

Just a minor point, (though my English teacher certainly wouldn't say so.) But when tidying up the questions can you add full stops after answers? I'm not saying that you don't, but so many answers don't have them.

As a sometime writer/journalist, these things irritate.

Seeing fewer and fewer mistakes, so great work by you both.

Question-"Montezuma's Castle is located in what USA state?"

Grammar, should be, is located in which American State.

Or even better, In which U.S State is Montezuma's Castle located ?

Doubling the diameter of a circle, how changes the surface?


Circles are two dimensional. Surface is a three dimensional concept. Two dimensional objects do not have surfaces. A circle can have an area or a perimeter (circumference). Here's how I would rewrite it:

When you double the diameter of a circle, how does its area change?

Errr ... No.

"Area" and "Surface" are synonyms.

Although you're right otherwise.
The area enclosed in a circle is called a Disk.

The question should be :
When you double the diameter of a disk, how does its area change?

W2 - Azanael
