Well I TRIED to put a "backslash-n" in there.

In section:

"How Computer Structure Relates to Software Functions"
12th paragraph, first 2 lines

remove the extra "make" from:

...some algorithms may make
make a decision by...

And thinking about it, the CPU does not "make a decision",
it either adds a number to the Program Counter register, or
not, depending on the state(s) of one or more bits in the
Status Register, as directed by a Jump/Branch instruction.
The CPU has no choice to make; what it does is dictated by
the instruction and current state of the Status flags.
