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.
