Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "Development"

The meaning of "Development" in various phrases and sentences

Q: O que significa the developments that coalesced in the group?
A: “The changes that happened within the group” is most likely the meaning given the context :)
Q: O que significa A: Any development in the boyfriend department?
B: Sigh... No, still nothing in sight.?
A: They are talking about person B and whether she/he has a new boyfriend or not.

A: have you found a boyfriend yet?
B: no, I haven’t found anyone I like yet.

So, development here means anything new.

In sight means B may have someone in mind.

Nothing meaning B does not have someone in mind.
Q: O que significa due to our rapid cultural development?
A: "Due to" = "Because of"
"Rapid" = "Quick"

For example:
"This is happening due to our rapid cultural development."

This means:
"This is happening because of our quick cultural development."

"Cultural Development" refers to the planning and implementing of strategies to improve your community's cultural assets and values for the economic and cultural benefit of the community as a whole.
Q: O que significa "You start the development sprint full of energy, but the ancient curse of Java bogs you down and you realize you are in for a marathon."?
A: There is a bit of a pun here. Sprint in sports means running very fast over short distance. Sprint in software development is a short period of time over which you have to develop a set functionality. So the sentence starts by mentioning sprint as it relates to software development, but then changes to talking about a marathon, which is a sports term. In sports, sprint is something that is quick and requires speed and energy, and a marathon is something that is slow and requires endurance over long periods of time.

So, to analyze this sentence: you expect that you are in for a sprint, that is you start your developing expecting to put in a lot of energy into it and to complete it quickly. However, the nature of Java (a programming language) is such that it bogs you down = you feel like you're a bog (a swamp) and can't move fast. And once you are bogged down, you realize that your sprint has turned into a marathon -- that is, it's going to take a long time and require patience and endurance from you.
Q: O que significa arrested development?
A: That quote is a play on words. Arrested development really means a stop (arrested means stopped) in physical growth/development (or it has also been used in the past as a stop in mental growth). But in this quote, as you may or may not know, Marilyn Monroe was a very voluptuous woman. So, she "developed" very well. So, because of her development (good body) somebody else might get into trouble with her and thereby get "arrested" by police. It's a joke. Shew! That was a long explanation.

Synonyms of "Development" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre 'It is also great for development cooperative skills ~' e 'it is also great for developing cooperative skills ~' ?
A: the first one reads as "[cooperative] development skills", i.e. the [cooperative] skills one has to stay developing

whereas the second one reads as "[developing] cooperative skills", i.e. the skills needed to work in a team [that are still being developed]

information in [ ] doesn't specify the skills, it rather describes it somehow...

using "development" makes it part of a compound word with a specific meaning because it is originally a noun (not an adjective), while "developing" is merely describing the other compound word because it is an adjective.

- paper wings (wings made of paper)
- [papery] wings (wings that look like paper)

- [yellow] paper wings
- [papery] yellow wings

for me the latter (developing cooperative skills) sounds more natural because of the word other :) but they're talking about different types of skills anyways!
Q: Qual é a diferença entre The developments IN technology. e The developments OF technology. ?

"Developments in technology" hints more towards the developments. The emphasis (focus) is on the developments.
"Developments of technology" hints more towards the technology. The emphasis (focus) is on the technology. In this phrase, the technology is advancing (improving).
Q: Qual é a diferença entre I can see the development of his English e I can see he improved his English ?

The only difference is that in the first sentence "his english" is the subject while in the second "he" is the subject.

Q: Qual é a diferença entre extensive development e intensive development ?
A: "Extensive" basically means large-scale, expansive, substantial, comprehensive, or thorough.

"Intensive" basically means a lot of work has been put in over a short period of time or lots of work has been concentrated on one specific task.

For example, producing a major blockbuster film with lots of characters, sets, locations etc. over a period of five years would be very a extensive project, but not necessarily intensive work. Creating a low-budget short film in one day would be very intensive work (a lot of hours put in working on the film over a short period), but the project wouldn't be very extensive.

Q: the development of the event is influenced by many factors (most of them /most of which )are beyond our control
A: The development of the event is influenced by many factors, most of which are beyond our control.

It's hard to explain, but "them" is a personal pronoun. You shouldn't follow another noun with a pronoun. Take this sentence for example:

We have many cats, most of them are white. Try to remove "most of" and read it again. It doesn't make sense.

We have many cats, most of which are white. Try to remove "most of" here. It still makes sense.

An example of using "most of them" would be: We had 10 apples and ate most of them.

Remove "most of" and the sentence still makes sense.

I hope this helps!
