    Post Down The Slope (And) Into

    Suppose there is a hole at the bottom of a slope. Then:

    "A ball rolled down the slope into the hole."
    "A ball rolled down the slope and into the hole."

    How are they different?

    They're not different.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
