Hey guys I'm applying for McMaster's health science program and this is my supplemental
There are supposed to be three questions, I am still working on the first one because I had to redo it.
This is the second oneSelect a four letter word in the English language which should be preserved and explain why (no

"Something" is the absence of "nothing"; therefore, "nothing" is a base or foundation used as a reference used to define "something". Without "nothing", "something" doesn't exist. The absence of quantity is defined by the four letter word: "zero". The four millennia old concept has experienced a multitude of transformations before arriving at its most concise and conceptual form yet: the English word "zero". This is a word that should survive through time because of the immensely important concepts that it represents.
The importance of zero is certainly undisputable. It is used as a base for measurment on many widely used scales such as the Kelvin scale for temperature. Further, zero is used extensivly in set theory; for example, all natural number are defined recursivly by zero. This also makes zero an integral foundation used in the proof of mathematical induction. In binary, zero represents a circuit's state when it is off, expanding its applications to all digital devices.
Zero possess a plethera of applications because, it is a major corner stone in mathematics, which it self has a multitude of applications. Its extensive use in present day society certainly serves to forshadow the potential magnitude of its use in the future. Even if a vast amount of knowledge was lost, it could always be regained if a foundation was present. Zero is a foundation.
This is the third and last one. I have no idea what to even mention! If you have any ideas that you think might be good please tell me
