    effect

    Hi dear teachers,
    Does the word "effect" always mean bad or good when it is used in a sentence? Sometimes I have seen the word "effect" used with "good" and "bad". but when it is alone, I mean with no "good" and "bad" what does it mean? Good or bad?

    Re: effect

    effect is, in itself, neither good nor bad.
