Synonyms of "Eg" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre Eg e Ex ?
A: "Ex." means a lot of things and one of them is "example", whilst "e.g." is a Latin abbreviation for "exempli gratia" (literally, "for example").

I've seen more "e.g." for "for example" than "ex.". If you're going to use one, I'd suggest "e.g.".

"I love to eat vegetables, e.g., carrots, spinach, and arugula."

Translations of "Eg"

Q: Como é que se diz isto em Inglês (EUA)? Eg: i remember having advised you to stop hunting endangered animals
Why use having , i m not understand
A: The rule is “remember” + [verb-ing]. Any verb that comes right after “remember” must be -ing.

This sentence implies three things:
1) I advised you to stop hunting.
2) You hunted after I advised you not to.
3) I know you hunted and I remember that I had told you not to.

The verb “had/having” shows that the advice happened before the hunting. You could also say, “I remember advising you to stop hunting endangered animals,” but adding “having” makes it clear that this happened first.

You start with the sentence, “I had advised you to stop hunting endangered animals.” To put this sentence after “remember,” you have to change “had” to an -ing verb: “I remember having advised you to stop hunting endangered animals.”

I hope this helps!

To whatever degree ...

Which words we use will depend on the whole sentence.

Q: What is 「~in'」 means?
I always saw this kind of words in text and article.
Is it the same meaning as「~ing」?
If so, why people use this instead of using 「~ing」?
A: -in' is sometimes used casually/informally instead of -ing.

In spoken English, sometimes -ing endings sound more like -in endings (depending on the word and the person's accent), so it is sometimes written that way to emphasize the -in pronunciation. In a fictional story, -in' may be used to indicate that's how the character pronounces the word.

The apostrophe ( ' ) is used to indicate that letter(s) have been intentionally omitted. In this case, the g has been omitted.
Q: Can I say "to shower" instead of "to take a shower"? Eg: I need to shower
Q: Eg:

He could ride a bike at this movement.
He could ride a bike last morning.

What is the difference among thier meanings ??!!
A: they just add to the first sentence to make it more interesting i guess or it depends if you are asked a certain question
