What's the difference and how to use it? Let's talk about it in this article.

There are three prepositions that are used in the word fill, and these are in, up, and out.

a preposition is a word or group of words used before a noun, pronoun, or noun phrase to show direction, time, place, location, spatial relationships, or to introduce an object. Some examples of prepositions are words like "in," "at," "on," "of," and "to."

Let's start with fill-up. Fill-up is used when there is a container that needs to be full. Anything that will serve as a container for something, examples are glass, fuel tank, plastic cups, etc. So if I say "Please fill-up the glass with water" it means put water in the glass.

I have been using this word incorrectly all my life until now(embarrassed). I used to say(in local language) "Paki fill-up-pan mo yang form", which is not correct.

So, for you to be not confused, with fill-up just remember the word container.

The next word is a fill-in. Fill-in is used if there is a blank space or shape that needs to be complete. For example, every time you take a test or exam, you can always see the word fill-in like "fill in the blanks." So the easiest way to remember how to use it properly is the word "blank space or shape" because you need to fill-in something to complete a sentence or a form.

Last is the word fill-out. Fill-out is used in answering forms. It is used to complete a form with the requested information. So always remember the word form when using fill-out.

Quick quiz

Fill____this form. Make sure that you fill____all the blank space before you fill____ your tank.
