Is there any difference between these 2 words: stripe/strip
"The bee has black stripes on its back." or "The bee has black strips on its back." or may be "The bee has strips of black on its back."
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
To me, "strip" is a separate item and not something caused by coloration or painting. You tear your shirt into strips if you need to make a tourniquet. There are 13 stripes on our flag. If the stripes become strips, it is time to de-commission the flag.
