    The sentence I made up: Each person has these abilities to varying extents and degrees.
    Is 'to varying extents and degrees' correct or it's a tautology? Would it be OK to say just "to varying extents" or just "to varying degrees"?

    My usage is: in varying degrees; to varying extents. In your example I would use the former.
