comment How to write abbreviations in spanish with a foreign explanation?
Additionally: in Spanish, an abreviatura is a written abbreviation that is read as a full word (or words), such as the ones mentioned in my previous comment; siglas are a word formed by the initial letter of other words, written in capitals and read as written, spelling each letter, such as RTVE; and acrónimo is the same as siglas, but read as a word, such as ONU.

By the way: acording to the RAE, there is a space between the period and the following letter, even in abbreviations. So those should be c. f. s., q. e. p. d.", *FF. AA. But this guideline is frequently ignored.

Additionally: the use of periods to separate letters in a Spanish abbreviation is incorrect, as guifa explains in his answer. It is only used at the end of an abbreviation, when it is formed by removing letters from a single word (for example: etc. is the abbreviation for etcétera).

I disagree that CTP is an acronym. An acronym should be pronounceable as a word, and this is not the case. Granted, sometimes the word acronym is used for non-pronounceable abbreviations, but saying that CTP is not an abbreviation is incorrect.

comment Spanish for “breasts”
@corsiKa The word busto does indeed have that additional meaning, as in English. But we don't usually append any suffixes to it in Spanish.

comment Can “la luz” be plural (lights) as well as singular (light)?
He leído algunos de los ejemplos que da Google. Por lo general, se fueron las luces se utiliza cuando nos referimos a algunas luces concretas, mientras que se fue la luz es general. Además, si usamos luz como sinónimo de suministro eléctrico, es siempre singular, claro, por ser incontable.

comment How to say a specific day of the month
Excepción: cuando el nombre del mes forma parte del nombre de una festividad o fecha señalada. Por ejemplo, la fiesta mexicana del Cinco de Mayo.

comment Uso del tiempo condicional o el pretérito
Estoy casi seguro de que dar es, en realidad, dan; tal vez un fallo de escaneo. Es lo más coherente: se usa el presente y luego el condicional para expresar algo que sucede en el futuro respecto a ese presente (para nosotros, todo está en el pasado).

comment Uso del pretérito y el imperfecto
Aquí es importante el hecho de que la acción principal también se expresa en pretérito (indefinido, en este caso). Por eso este tiempo verbal se llama pretérito anterior: expresa algo que sucede antes de otro hecho del pasado.

comment ¿Adjetivo para el invierno?
Con las ediciones ha quedado una contradicción. Por un lado, se dice que estival se usa para el verano; por otro, que está en desuso. En realidad, estival se sigue utilizando con frecuencia.
