    "What sentence should we use?"

    Hello everybody,

    I have 3 questions. Please help me with it.

    1."She was calling me from down" I mean from ground floor.
    Is the sentence correct?
    If the sentence is wrong, then what could be used.

    2. When should we use Happy and Merry.
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

    3. At what occasion we use "find and search."

    Please clarify. Thanks

    she was calling me from downstairs.

    Merry christmas and happy new year. yes, that's traditional usage.
    You can say "happy" [anything] - "happy birthday, easter, christmas ..."
    but, "merry" is normally used just for christmas.


    3. At what occasion we use "find and search."
    if you are searching for something, you want to find it.
    "search = look for = seek = try to find". None of these verbs mean that you have found anything.

    please clarify. Thanks
