Why 'met' instead of 'went down'. Can anyone explain me?

Sahithi said: (Mar 11, 2014)  
As doom means fate, nobody can't say to go up or down in fate, just we face the fate it means we meet the fate, in past it is met.

An/hundred or a hundred (which is the correct one).

Shruthi said: (May 16, 2016)  
@Kavi.

A hundred is correct.

It must be honor not honour.

@Divyank.

Honor and honour are same like color and colour, favorite and favoutite.

Guys! Can anyone explain to me?

Aish said: (May 29, 2017)  
Yes, you are correct @Sahithi.

Honor or Honour are both accepted spelling in English. There are various forms of English- US, UK, Australian, & our Indian which is a Combo US & the UK depending on the schools the studied. US English does not have you in words like Colour, Honour, etc but Indian English does have. @Venala & @ Divyank, hope this helps.
