Today's activity (Answer ALL questions from a to o) (10 MARKS)__
1- Download the following URL
2- With the help of regexpal
3- Answer the following questions with snapshots:
a) How many instances of "the" and "The" using the sentence boundary anchor and a regular expression (i.e., there are two methods to search for "the" and "The" what are they and what is the syntax for it.
b) search for all "spaces"
c) search for all capital letters

k) BONUS QUESTIONS: NOW Erase the whole text and write the following words on the regex tester: sing, sang, sung. How do you find these words with one regular expression without using the pipe symbol?
BONUS QUESTIONS: type hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii, hi, hii, hiiiii how can you search for them without resorting to the pipe symbol?

BONUS QUESTIONS: type: found and find on the regex pal: Can you search using a combination of /./ and the /?/ or what?

BONUS QUESTIONS : type behaviour and behavior which anchor should be used?

BONUS QUESTIONS: If you are using regular expressions for a phrase like (the more, the merrier) which one would you choose:

1- /the (.*)er they (.*).
