    Default Small size in Uk is what size in Malaysia?

    1) Small size in Uk is equivalent to what size in Malaysia?
    2) Small size in Uk is what size in Malaysia?
    3) Is there any difference in size between the small size in Uk and Malaysia?


    Im learning how to construct sentences using the word size. Are the above sentences correct? Please advice.

    Default Re: Small size in Uk is what size in Malaysia?

    If you are referring to mass-produced clothing, you should say "size small" rather than "small size." Size small, size medium, size large and so forth are common usages in regard to clothing.

    Also it's not Uk, it's the U.K. or the UK.

    And advice is a noun. You should say "Please advise." Advise is a verb.
