    Correct Answer
    A. E.G
    Explanation
    An example of a proper acronym is "E.G", which stands for "exempli gratia" in Latin, meaning "for example" in English. Acronyms are formed by taking the initial letters of a group of words and creating a new word. In this case, "E.G" is a widely recognized acronym used in English to introduce examples or provide further clarification. It is considered proper because it follows the standard rules of acronym formation and is commonly used in written and spoken language.

    Correct Answer
    B. Sentence 2
    Explanation
    Sentence 2 uses abbreviations appropriately. "Dr." is an accepted abbreviation for "Doctor" and is used correctly in the sentence. The abbreviation "PH.D" in Sentence 1 should be written as "Ph.D." with periods to indicate it is an abbreviation for "Doctor of Philosophy".

    Which of the following sentence uses initialism appropriately?1. The plane arrives at approximately 7 p.m..2. The plane will arrive at approximately 7 p.m.

    • A.

      Sentence 1

    • B.

      Sentence 2

    Correct Answer
    B. Sentence 2
    Explanation
    Sentence 2 uses initialism appropriately because it correctly uses "p.m." as an abbreviation for "post meridiem." Initialisms are commonly used to replace longer phrases or names, and in this case, "p.m." is used to represent "post meridiem," indicating the time in the afternoon or evening. Sentence 1, on the other hand, does not use initialism appropriately as it does not abbreviate any phrase or name.
