How to use seem in a sentence?

  1. Dorian Fuhrman:

    The 5 % thing, I've always seen since I started it -- on Juul packs and everything -- but I never knew what it was, five percent doesn't seem like that much, out of 100 %.

  2. Tara Houska:

    They seem to think that it's going to deter us from protecting the land. They are fundamentally missing the point of what water protectors are doing, which is willing to put ourselves our freedom, our bodies, our personal comfort on the line for something greater than ourselves.

  3. Australian Scott:

    It's huge for The Australian Open as no matter what happens to Jordan on the course the rest of this year, the tournament will have the U.S. Masters and The Australian Open winner in the field, it continues to keep The Australian Open on the world stage. Jordan is the most exciting player we have out here at the moment and continues a good run for organisers back home as they seem to continue to get the right players to tee up.

  4. Grand Duchess Olga Alexandrovna of Russia:

    A moment later I remembered that the young woman having spent five years in Germany, would naturally have learnt the language, but then I heard that when she was rescued from that canal in 1920, she spoke nothing but German – when she spoke at all- which was not often. I readily admit that a ghastly horror experienced in one’s youth can work havoc with one’s memory but I have never heard of any ghastly experience endowing anyone with a knowledge they had not had before it happened. My nieces knew no German at all. Mrs Anderson did not seem to understand a word of Russian or English, the two languages all the four sisters had spoken since babyhood. French came a little later, but German was never spoken in the family.

  5. Amy Hunter:

    When he talks about guns, gun sales go up, if what he’s trying to do is to stop people from buying guns, it doesn’t seem to be working so well.
