Sybilla, they’re two different words, it has nothing to do with British or American spelling! Discrete means something separate as in individual, while discreet means showing good judgement.

myers nj, Yes, you are correct handing assignments in late was affecting his grade. We used affect as a verb. The sentence asked for a noun. The practice had a negative effect on his grade. Thank you, Christine, James's wife

Johnny Rock, I went the other way. Factoring in the number of complaints and cries of dismay, I decided for the US spelling, and lost one point!

16/16 When it came down to the final question I factored in the trickiness of the questions and therefore went with the British spelling of complement instead of our (American) spelling.
