What is form ?

Form means “a
document with blank spaces for information to be inserted”. The
information required in forms is usually quite similar to each other.
Below are some kinds of information you need to fill out a form:

1. Name

This information is
required in all kinds of form. Some forms require the information to
be written in block letters or block capitals. It means you have to
write everything in capital letters. In forms with boxes, leave one
box space between each word.

You may also need to
write a tittle. Pay attention to the kinds of the title below:

Mr. is used for all
men. e.g Mr. Qomar

Mrs. is used for
married woman. e.g Mrs. Qomar

Miss is used for a
single woman (jomblo). e.g Miss Siti

the boxes. Sometimes you write the full number of year (2018), but
sometimes you just need to write the two last numbers (18)
