LS Refresher 32: Below,Under, and Beneath

zOnce a week, we will post an LS refresher .  Check out this week’s refresher   and please don’t forget to answer the short quiz after.

Do you sometimes get confused with below, under, and beneath? Englishgrammar.org (https://www.englishgrammar.org) gave these simple tips:

“To talk about something being covered by something else, we use under. Below is mainly used in cases where an object is not directly under another.”

On the other hand, according to Dictionary.cambridge.org, “beneath is particularly common when talking about the ground or surface directly under one’s feet. We use beneath, not under, to talk about things which are at a lower level in terms of a person’s abilities, status or expectations.”
