    Default Re: various, variety and variable

    various = adjective, meaning different:
    The ice creams come in various flavours.
    variety = noun
    The variety of fruits and vegetables available today is huge.
    variable = adjective meaning changing
    The weather in England is very variable- one minute it's sunny, the next it's raining.
