    affect in deciding

    If you see any mistakes in the following sentences, can I have your feedback?

    ( teacher to students about how to write a personal statement)

    What has motivated you to choose the subject of your interest ?
    What have you done in the past that is relevant to the subject of your interest?

    Re: affect in deciding

    What do you mean by "the subject of your interest"?
    Do you intend for those two questions to have the same meaning?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: affect in deciding

    And what has 'affect' to do with your question. Is it, perhaps 'What has affected your decision about a subject for your research?'
