People generally do mistakes while using pronouns. Pronouns are the words or context used in place of a noun.For example, People generally confuse while placing pronouns such as I, Me and Mine. While writing a cover letter you need to have a clear understanding of what pronoun you need to use and where to use. Mashing up everything will leave the reader clueless. Similarly, people generally get confused about where to use then
. In writing, it looks similar but the meaning is really very different. While then
is used in the context of time, Than
is used for comparing between two things. For example, let's take an example where we will misplace than by then.
“ Shyama is more beautiful then Rama” ----> Wrong use of than.
“Shyama is more beautiful than Rama: ---------> Correct use of than.
“Then he went to pick up the pen” -----------> Correct use of then.
“Than he went to pick up the pen” -----------> Wrong use of then
From the above examples, it's very clear how to use then and than. Similarly, few people have confusion over him/her or his/ him and so on. Best thing is to understand properly where to use the pronoun and how to use.
