    Am I using these words in the right Context?

    I've wrote a small paragraph with new words i've learned.
    (Replete, Annals, prognosticate, interminable, intricate, decimate, tinge,)

    Please help me if there are any errors in grammar and tenses.




    Universe is repleted with stars and a seemingly interminable stretch of darkness. In the midst of darkness there are small planets like Earth, where life subsits. The required conditions for earth to sustain life is incredibly intricate in a way that, if we shift one aspect of our nature we will face harsh consequences. Some scientists prognosticate that our planet "Earth" will be confronted with many natural disasters that will slowly decimate parts of our land.

    Annals of natural disasters show that in the last decade there have been tinge more cases that opposed a bigger threat to the world than the previous ones. If this trend were to continue we could be possibly facing the...

    Re: Am I using these words in the right Context?

    "I've wrote.." should be "I've written.."

    "is repleted" should be "is replete"

    "where life subsits" should be "where life subsists"

    "is incredibly intricate" should be "are incredibly intricate" because the phrase refers to the plural noun "conditions".

    "in a way that, if we shift one aspect of our nature we will face harsh consequences.."
    You omitted a comma after "nature".

    "there have been tinge more cases" has no meaning.
    You can not use "tinge" here.

    "more cases that opposed a bigger threat.."
    I think you mean "posed a bigger threat"?
