Do You Know the Difference between Affect and Effect?

Today’s post is provided by Grammarly and is a quiz about the difference between affect and effect. I see my clients getting these two words mixed up all the time. It’s a common mistake to make, but once you understand which word means what, you’ll be a pro at affect and effect in no time!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so I thought a post with more romantic connotations would be appropriate. Today’s post is sponsored by Grammarly in conjunction with eHarmony. Read below for all the details and cute infographic. Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂

(From Grammarly)—

Grammarly, the team behind the popular writing app, partnered with the online dating website eHarmony to determine whether the writing skills displayed in people’s online dating profiles affect their chances of finding romance. Grammarly summarized the results, along with other online dating statistics, in an infographic.

Methodology

Grammarly reviewed 10,000 eHarmony male/female matches generated by eHarmony’s matching algorithm. Fifty percent of the matches advanced to two-way communication, while the other fifty percent failed to advance. Each male and female in a match wrote long-form answers to questions on their dating profile. These writing samples were analyzed by Grammarly’s automated proofreader for accuracy in grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
