..1. What's the difference between "get, gain, receive, own"? I know 'own' is quite different from the rest because it means something that you possess. The rest means like you try to get it.
get= buy/obtain/receive/earn something
gain = obtain something
receive = be given something
own = to possess something.
2. a pair of earrings, should I say i like these ones or this one? How about a bunch of grapes, a pair of chopsticks? one or ones? "I like these earrings"/"I like this pair of earrings"; "Please pass me that pair of chopsticks"; Would you like this bunch of grapes?" "Pair" is singular.
