It is a great pleasure for me to place the Revised Edition of Applied English Grammar and Composition in the hands of the readers. The material has been rewritten/reset according to the latest guidelines issued by CBSE for English Language and Literature.
Examples and exercises have been framed keeping in view the latest sample paper and syllabus for English— Language and Literature issued by CBSE. Since, the emphasis has shifted to thinking skills such as inference, evaluation, analysis and arriving at conclusion or presenting argument with supporting examples, care has been taken to develop, improve and sharpen such skills in students.
It is hoped that this latest edition will fully serve the needs of the students preparing for the secondary examination (IX and X classes) as well as those interested in mastering English grammar.
