Hi, friends.

On this fine day, I have taken a strong part of Grammar to you which will give the clear concept of it.

First of all,we all have to find a clear concept on what Grammar is. It is:

Grammar is the science that deals with the rules and practices of a language which are for changing the form of words and joining them into sentences.

Now, you can feel the Importance of Grammar.

If you don't know Grammar,a language will be made in an ugly form. It is,the disorder in forming a sentence.

Now, be positive.
