  1. sir , can you plese tell me about this sentence how we change it in positive – Womens are not better administrator than Men.

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Bless you!

  3. Very useful site.

  4. Very nice and helpful site

  5. Really a helpful site

  6. Women are not so good administrator as man.

    • Mr/Ms Mishra – The sentence says women are not better. It does not mean that they are less. If women are not better, take them as equal at least, not less. But here you made them below the equality. I dont say you are wrong but many people will definitely say your sentence wrong. Therefore, it is better to write – Men are as good administrators as women. or Women are as good administrators as men. But not women are not so good administrators as men.
      thanks a lot.
      for more clarification, comment again. If satisfied, say thank you.

  7. My answer was correct but It was showing incorrect. I have studied English grammar.

  8. My answer was correct but It was showing incorrect. I have studied English grammar. Very bad answer
