    Questions, please (lol)

    1) "It's the best movie yet"- Does this sentence mean this is the best movie ever?
    2) What are the differences between exculpate and acquit and exonerate?
    3) Can two or more uncountable noun going with and go with a plural verb?
    Money and love are two different things
    or
    Money and love is two different thing
    4)How can you define self realization? Does it mean the same as realization or actualization?
    5) In this sentence:" You have been tutored and refined by books and retirement from the world, and you are therefore somewhat ; but this only renders you the more fitto appreciate the extradordinary merits of this wonderful man."
    What class of words does fit stand in? Noun or adj? If it is noun, how can it come after the more?
    Supposed you don't know the word "render" and have to base on the context to guess. So here are two possible choices" provide" and "make". What is your choice? Why?
    Thanks in advance

    It's not exactly the same- I'd use it for a sequence of films or films that were somehow related.

    You can use a plural verb. It depends on whether you see the two items as separate or part of the same thing. In your example, the plural sounds better to me.

    It means that you manage to achievce what you want and realise your potential.

    It's an adjective. There's something missing in the sentence- somewhat...
    renders = makes here because it implies a transformation of the person's character

    How about this: Wine and water doesn't come together or don't come together?

    It's "don't", but why don't they?

    Oh, count/uncount nouns are not like the way we use with numbers, aren't they?
