    The First One Is Correct.
    The Second Part: Can We Say The Brown Part? Or The Burnt Part?

    Re: 2 easy questions

    1 It's the action of putting the clothes onto your body- getting dressed, so your sentence is right, but it describes the action, not the state of having them on your body.
    2 Is it burned deliberately for flavour? If so, you could use a word like 'crust', I think.

    Re: 2 easy questions

    hmmm.it's not for flavor...i
    think crust is what we use for the outermost part...burnt part there means, when somebody cooks rice there's this tendency that it will get burnt a little...that's not deliberately done.^^


    so...what d'yu think?

    If it's not done for flavour, then I would just say the 'burnt bits'.
