Na the same word
UK English = Centre
American English = center

So, we Nigerians use Centre because of British colonization.

this one na war sha..
Center=== when dividing a thing..like middle..
Centre ===like a hall use for conference,meeting..a suite

Mbamally:
1. who's and whose
Who’s is a contraction, who + is, or who + has.
For example: who’s hungry?
Whose is a possessive pronoun.
For example: whose sandwich is this?

2. toward and towards
Both spellings are correct, and they mean the same thing: in the direction of.
Toward is the preferred spelling in the United States and Canada. In other English-speaking countries, such as the United Kingdom and Australia, towards is the more common spelling.

3. their and there
There means the opposite of here; “at that place.” Their means “belongs to them.”

4. stationary and stationery
Stationary means fixed, or unchanging.
Stationery refers to paper, matching envelopes etc.

5. inquiry and enquiry
enquire simply means to “ask,” while inquire was used for formal investigations. You can use either enquire or inquire and not make a mistake.
Inquire is what you’ll usually see in American English.

6. loose and lose
Loose: means not firmly fixed, or not tight.
The handle is loose.
Lose: I don't want to lose my job.

8. defense and defence
Defence and defense are both correct/the same.
It comes down to the part of the world in which they are used. In the United States, people spell it with an “s” while UK with "c".
