    3) blanket vs quilt A blanket is woven from fibres; a quilt has two layers, between which is a padding, and is sewn together..

    4) I'm looking for a verb that describe actions such as: Change from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit or from meters to foot... "convert"

    5) I'm looking for a noun: Vietnamese tenth graders are being divided into three_____. Students of _______ A major (ie: They learn these subjects more than others) in Math, Physics and Chemistry, students of _______ D major in a foreign language and Math and Literature, students of _____ C deosn't major in any particular subject... How can we fill in the blank with one word? Try "stream(s)"
