Why is Sydney the most populated?

There are many reasons why Sydney is highly populated. One of the reasons behind this is that there are significant amount of employment opportunities which is especially appealing to individuals wishes to seek out a broader range of career opportunities than what they can get from elsewhere, such as the Illawarra region, which has unfortunately suffered one of the state's highest unemployment rates, hence those unemployed seeking employment generally find more opportunities for a career in Sydney. Sydney is also the Capital of NSW and hence generally Capital cities would have a higher population. Sydney is heavily rich in cultural variation, provides attractive features that appeal to tourists, etc. Sydney is a tourist attraction and also has many employment opportunities that individuals seek out, including those from different regions such as Wollongong who decide to travel to Sydney for work since Wollongong tends to lack in employment opportunities for various occupational areas.


Why do you use a dot in some abbreviations and not in all abbreviations?

Firstly, it depends on the country and the writing conventions followed.The abbreviations that have dots means that more then one word is shortened (for example: the United State is usually abbreviated to U.S.)However, it is important to note that writing conventions are now moving towards omitting the fullstop altogether. In the UK, the fullstop is not used in abbreviations which include the first and last letters of a single word, such as Mr, Mrs,Dr or St. In the United States, the fullstop is retained, e.g. Mr., Mrs.,Dr. and St.In Australia, which follows the UK conventions, the states are not abbreviated with fullstops. New South Wales, for example, is abbreviated as NSW, not N.S.W.Exceptions to the above are abbreviations of Latin words, such as e.g., which is short for exempli gratia, meaning for 'example', or a.m., short for ante meridiem. Such Latin terms currently retain the fullstops, but again, there is an increasing trend towards omitting the fullstop.
