Are you a fan of kpop? πŸ˜‚

people say,Are You "SARCASTIC"? or any sarcastic thoughts? in which sense shoul we use this word and what is the answer ?(and any gramertical mistake please point it out )

"Sarcastic" is an adjective that can describe both people and ideas (words, sentences, statements, etc.). Therefore, we can say "My sister is so sarcastic" and "My sister has a very sarcastic sense of humor." (Your question wasn't grammatically bad; we would just check spelling, e.g., "shoul" and "gramertical"). πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Kpop groups are considered collective nouns, right? So is it proper to use one group as a singular noun? Like, "Girls' Generation is a legend." Or "EXO ranks as top boyband." ??

In American English, we treat band names like regular nouns, so Girls' Generation and EXO would both be considered singular nouns, e.g., Girls' Generation IS my sister's favorite girl group, and EXO is her favorite boy group. But in British English, collective nouns are often treated as plural nouns (because each group has more than one member), e.g., EXO are performing tomorrow night.

When we use "know" and "knows"?

In the present tense, we use "know" with I, you, we, they, and plural nouns, e.g., I know the answer to the question.

In the present tense, we use "knows" with he, she, it, and singular nouns, e.g., She knows that Tokyo is the capital of Japan.

We also use "know" (but not "knows") with MIGHT, MIGHT NOT, WILL, WON'T, MAY, MAY NOT, DO, DON'T, DOES, DOESN'T, DIDN'T, e.g., She didn't know the answer; he won't know it either. Does your teacher know?

"The sun was up and there was no time for any Tom foolery" what does that line means?

"Tomfoolery" means 'foolish or silly behavior,' so that sentence means "It was daytime and there was no time to be acting silly or participating in foolish behavior."

'Hes' and 'he is' are these the same meaning? *sorry for my english*

Almost. "He's" (with the apostrophe) is a contraction of "he is," e.g., He's (He is) my brother. He's (He is) not here right now.

Whats happen to your grammar or whats happen for your grammar

Neither. It should be "What happened to your grammar?" That's what you would ask to someone whose grammar used to be good but is now bad. (The more formal/technical way to ask would be "What has happened to your grammar?")

Is "Don't need no money to have a good time" grammatically correct? And what does the statement mean? Double negative = positive?

It's not grammatically correct. As you pointed out, it's a double negative, which is a no-no. πŸ™…πŸ» The sentence is saying "You don't need (any) money to have fun."

Be it askfm, twitter or instagram, i love your accounts! You elaborate things perfectly. Thumbs up mate! I saved many pics from your account because it may be useful in the future πŸ˜‰ (Correct my sentence if there are grammatical errors)

Thanks for the kind words! Your sentences were almost perfect, but we would capitalize "Twitter," "Instagram," and "I" in the first sentence, add a comma before "mate," and change "it may be" to "they may be" (because "pics" is plural). πŸ‘πŸ»

How to improve grammar properly? I am not feel confident when I'm speaking and writing. But I am easy understand what people said, ty before! ☺

Hi. We answered something similar just a few minutes ago: https://ask.fm/The_YUNiversity/answers/142526514818

In your case, we would also add one important tip: PRACTICE. Especially when it comes to speaking and writing, nothing beats practice. Read books aloud, talk to your friends in English (and if you're embarrassed about it, talk to yourself at first), keep a journal and write in English every day, etc. If you keep it up for a few months, you will see a big improvement! πŸ‘πŸ»

What is different between important & importance, confident & confidence, etc. Thanks!

"Important" and "confident" are adjectives; "importance" and "confidence" are nouns.

For example: Be CONFIDENT when you talk about IMPORTANT matters. Because your audience will be paying close attention, your CONFIDENCE is of the utmost IMPORTANCE when you speak.

for better english what should we do......should we start from tenses or just reading books

IMAD

Reading books is a good place to start. But as you read, pay attention to how the author uses verb tenses. At the same time, pay attention to sentence structure, how he or she uses adverbs and adjectives, and what idioms are being used. If you ever get confused, turn to a grammar guide (a book or an online site). A great website for verb tenses is http://www.englishpage.com

Good luck! πŸ‘πŸ»

Hi! What is that phrase if we want someone to treat us a meal? I've heard it once, but i forgot. The phrase has the tab word....is it the tab's on me? Thank you :)

The phrase with "tab" would be "Put it on my tab," which means 'put it on my on-going bill' (which I'll pay later). If someone is offering to pay for the meal, he would say "It's on me." If you want to eat a meal and have someone else (a friend, for example) pay for it, you could ask, "Hey, can we put it on your tab?" 😁

When i uploaded my picture on instagram, my friend left a comment like "aesthetically pleasing huh?" What is the meaning of "aesthetically pleasing"? And then, what kind answer should I reply to her comment? Thank you guys. (I'm so sorry my English is bad :(( )

"Aesthetically pleasing" is another way of saying 'pretty' or 'beautiful.' If someone asks, "Aesthetically pleasing, huh?", you can reply, "Yes, it is." If someone says, "Your pictures are aesthetically pleasing," then you can respond, "Thank you." (Btw, your English is not bad at all.) πŸ‘πŸ»
