SYNONYMS – PRACTICE SET – SOLVED
What is a synonym?
Synonyms are different words which have the same or similar meanings. For example consider the word GOOD; this word has many synonyms like fine, excellent, satisfactory, wonderful, superb, etc. They can be similar nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions. Synonyms help to improve our selection of words, or choosing the best word to communicate effectively. Choosing the precise word is essential to writing well. Also synonyms are necessary to avoid repeating the same word again and again.
Synonyms are crucial for choosing the perfect word. While some languages have only one word for one meaning, English uses a variety of words to convey a single meaning, each with its own unique and subtle distinction.
