ARE YOU SMARTER THAN AN ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONAL?

Only the BEST administrative professionals can pass this test!

Although April 26th is officially Administrative Professionals Day, every day is a great day to thank those talented people who run offices all around the world. Take this quiz to see if you have the grammar chops to cut it at this much needed (but sometimes thankless) job!

i.e. OR e.g.

I.E. is often mixed up with E.G. or considered interchangeable, but they are not! Here’s what they mean and how to avoid mixing them up in the future:

“i.e.” is Latin for “id est,” meaning “that is.”
“e.g.” is Latin for “exempli gratia,” meaning “for example.”

Use “i.e.” when you want to give further explanation for something.
Use “e.g.” when you want to give a few examples but not a complete list.

i.e. = (think: “in essence”)
e.g = (think: “examples given”)
