Q: What is the difference between The sudden, violent appearance of crack cocaine had police departments across the country scrapping for resources. and The sudden, violent appearance of crack cocaine had police departments across the country to scrape for resources. ?
A: The difference is in the form of "to scrape". So the appearance of cocaine is in the past tense, right? It's said that it's in the past because of "had". In the past, the police were doing something. This is the continuous form of the verb, which is "Verb + -ing". So the right answer would be the first one because the police were doing something in the past, while the second one doesn't fulfill that criteria.

Translations of "Appearance"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? You shouldn't be concerned about the appearance of your partner, your car, or your house, because you will eventually get tired of looking at them.
A: It sounds natural.

You could replace 'about' with 'with' and you can remove 'your' from car and from house because the 'your' connected to partner implies that is also 'your' car and 'your' house. Either way works, but saying 'your' on each word is a little bit redundant.

There is also never a comma ( , ) before 'because'.

You shouldn't be concerned [with] the appearance of your partner, car, or house because you will eventually get tired of looking at them.

Other questions about "Appearance"

Q: He is so funny considering appearance. Does this sound natural?
A: It's a bit difficult to figure out what you mean here. but I'm guessing you're talking about a person who is funny despite not looking it. if so, a more natural way to say that would be 'he's so funny even though he doesn't look it.'
Q: His appearance told us he didn't listen to us. Does this sound natural?
A: You could tell he wasn't listening to us.
彼が聞いてないとわかることができた
Q: She is constantly carrying about her appearance and she spend all her money on new clothes and beauty salons. It's obvious, that she's vain or even narcissistic. Does this sound natural?
A: To care about one's appearance sounds awkward to me if you use it as a progressive. I'd say it like this:

She cares about her appearance a lot and is constantly spending all her money on new clothes and going* to beauty salons. It's obvious that she's vain and maybe even narcissistic.

*Spending money on beauty salons makes it sound as if she is buying the salons themselves
Q: From his appearance, I couldn't tell whether he was Japanese, Chinese, Korean or another person. Does this sound natural?
A: The singular of people is person.

"I couldn't tell if it was Dave or another person" would be OK but we would probably say "I couldn't tell if it was Dave or someone else".

Your nationality is Japanese.

In your sentence there is a series of nationalities or races (Japanese, Chinese, Korean) so we expect the "or" phrase to reflect nationality or race too.

Unfortunately the English language options are limited. The only specific words we have for race, are race itself or ethnicity (ethnic group). I chose "nationality" because it's more likely to be used these days.

(In fact, "nationality" can include people of other races who have that passport.)

So, you could say "I couldn't tell whether he was Japanese, Chinese, Korean or a person from somewhere else". It's OK but a bit of a mouthful.

(I hesitate to make this more complicated but "people" can be used in relation to nationality. For example, "Germans, as a people, tend to be optimistic." That usage has an academic feel to it.)

Let me know if that answers your question OK.

Q: It isn't so much the charming appearance her smiling visage creates as the lofty air she innately possesses that makes her liked by a whole slew of people. Does this sound natural?
A: It isn't so much the charming appearance her smiling visage creates, as the lofty air she innately possesses that makes her liked by a whole slew of people.

I think you need a comma in there. And it's correct grammatically, it just doesn't sound like something someone would say.
