On May 25, 2018, the new European Union General Data Protection Regulation will go into ________.

a. affect
b. effect


Answer: B

Affect is usually a verb, and it means to impact or change. Effect is usually a noun, an effect is the result of a change. However, there are deviations for both rules. When in doubt, follow this rule: The action is affect, the end result is effect.
