In American English, practice. I believe British English spells it practise. Answer In British and Australian usage, practice is a noun, practise is a verb. In the question "practise" is used correctly as a verb.
A practice that was used by the colonists to hurt British trade was the refusal of British goods that were imported and the export of American goods to Britain. This was in response to the taxation on goods that the British were trying to impose on the colonies.
In practice, the British mercantile system worked so that the Colonists were being regulated by British rules. The Colonists resented this and the passing of the Stamp Act was said to be the last straw that pushed them over the edge as far as hostility toward the British.
Practice is a noun. Practise is a verb. Ie. You need more practice. You must practise. Unless you are writing American English, in which case it's always "practice." But, what if you're British and the contest has a practice/practise round?
The British wanted gold, money and taxes from the colonies. All of the resources, minerals and what not they could get without working for, they demanded. This was typical of wherever the British went.
No. "Practise" is the British spelling of the verb "to practise". In North America the same verb is used with exactly the same meaning but with a slightly different spelling :"to practice". The noun "practice" on the other hand is spelled in both British and American English identically.
