Hello, I would appreciate your help in determining whether these sentences are gramatically correct:
1) (first half of sentence, unimportant), but rather my aptitude for leading myself through uncertainty.
AM I USING THE WORD APTITUDE CORRECTLY?
and 2) which version of this sentence is correct?
Version 1: Consistent dedication and perseverance have helped me to obtain this balance.
Version 2: Consistent dedication and perseverance has helped me to obtain this balance.
Have or Has???
Thank you for help!
