Q: Qual é a diferença entre working hours e business hours ?
A: @mihaskh пожалуйста ^_^

I used person (singular) with "their" because I didn't want to specify the gender of the person. It doesn't matter in this context whether it is a male or female, so instead of saying his or her job, I say their.

Generally when you don't want to specify the gender of the person, or it isn't important - saying the plural form is fine.

In spoken language it is
normal to do so but in written language it is often a style choice. So if you choose to say "their" instead of "he/she" - make sure to be consistent 🙂
Q: Qual é a diferença entre over 10 hours e above 10 hours ?

A: "just" is used a little more in giving time. While "only" implies time is being lost
