A: Basically it means that there are multiple ways to achieve something, and that you shouldn’t only follow what the majority of people do. For example, let’s say you wanted to become wealthy. Most people go to college to try and get a degree so that they can hopefully get higher paying jobs. While there are many alternatives to this, you could become a certified plumber, which requires no degree, and if you work hard you will make a very high amount of money, similar or even greater than many college graduates.

In essence it is expressing “don’t limit yourself to what everyone else does” or “make your own path”.

Does it sound natural? if not, could you please corret me?
A: The phrase at the beginning should be “still on the fence”. Make sure to capitalize the first letter of each sentence. Put a space between ‘22’ and ‘months’. And at the end, you made a typo or misspelling of the word ‘correct’. That’s pretty much it, the rest is correct and makes sense. If you want an additional suggestion, you could replace the last sentence of your paragraph with this: “I’m sure there are pros and cons, but I don’t yet know what the best option is for us.”
Q: A temporary fence is erected between domestic and international tracks is seen at Hyllie train station in southern Malmo, Sweden, Jan. 3, 2016.

A: Yes, you are correct. 'erected between domestic and international tracks' in this case is a description of the temporary fence, and not what is happening to the fence. What is happening to the fence is that it is seen at Hyllie train station.
