Where to use OVER and ABOVE
Although both the terms “Above” and “Over” means at a higher place, yet I am telling you a very specific difference.
“ABOVE” is used in those places which is physically higher
The plane is ___a city
It clearly means, that the plane in its physically form is there above
If you want to use “Over”, then the sentence will change.
Now, I am writing in the following manner:-
The plane flew over the city
It means, that the place few from one part of the city to another
However, in the following sentences, both can be used.
