    In future, please start a new thread for each different question. It can become confusing if people respond to different questions in one thread.

    Grammatically fine, but unnatural. We'd probably say something like "Come spring/When spring comes, the temperature/weather will be pleasant at night as well as during the day".

    2-More crucial is a distinction between what I call internalized and externalized responsibility. Fine

    3-She daily showers her baby daily/every day..

    4- What is your most watched movie ? What is the movie you watch most?

    5- They daily transport our company raw materials. This is not a sentence.

    What is your most watched movie?" is, in most contexts, unnatural.
