Prefix means something has to be fixed before the word to make it meaningful. For example, Mal– nourished and In-visible . Sometimes, it will be asked to pick out wrong prefix or suffix too.

Suffix means something has to be fixed latter end of the word to make it meaningful. For Example, Sing-able.

The Article are “a, an, the” should be used in appropriate blank in the sentence. For example: The Value of a Euro is determined by European countries. Here article ‘a’ is used because the word Euro pronounced as ‘ uro’ where E is silent in the term Euro. The article ‘a’ is used only when vowels( a,e,i,o,u) are used.

Ex for Question Tag:  Please close the door, will you?

Likewise see what is adverb: Ear-ly, Preposition, Plural& singular form, Spotting errors (mainly tenses should be corrected) Etc.

British and American English:

Storm – Tempest,  Cheque – Check, Licence – License and Metre – Meter.

Compound Noun: ExamplesSpell-bound: Noun+verb & Dry-clean: adjective + verb.

Sentence Pattern: Brutus is an honourable man.

Here Brutus is Subject, is- verb and Honourable man – compliment. Thus the sentence pattern is S+V+C = SVC.

Sentence degree:

Egmore is the nearest railway station. –  Superlative degree

Send the resume as soon as possible – Positive degree

She is elder than me – Comparative degree.
