is the below sentecne correct or it needs BUT after the comma?

Being intelligent is great, it may not be enough to be a successful person.

Hello ahmed,

Yes, some kind of conjunction (such as 'but') is needed after the comma. As it is now, this is a comma-splice, which is generally not accepted in writing (though it's quite common in speaking).

All the best,

Hello. could you help with this?

people is the most important asset.
people are the most important asset.

what do you suggest?

thanks a lot

Hello ahmed,

'people' is plural, so the second sentence is correct. Please note that the dictionary (see the search box in the right margin) could be useful for this kind of question, as it gives example sentences.

Best wishes,

which one is most correct?
1. key of excellence

Hello ahmed.abdul-fattah,

The correct phrase is probably the second, but the others are not incorrect in some contexts.
