    over or above

    Hi there,

    Does 'over' mean 'above' in the following sentence?

    There is a mistake in each line. Underline the mistake and write the correct word over it / above it.

    Re: over or above

    If I write 'over' something, I will be writing right on top of it, so that it might be difficult to read either word. If I write 'above' it, I am writing the word a little higher on the page.


    'above' is typed above the word 'word' !
