    Unhappy Right vs Correct

    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me can we use Right/ Correct interchangeably?

    I'll be grateful to you if you can explain when to use both the words with example. :)

    You can only interchange them when 'right' means 'correct' as an adjective.
    Your answer is right/correct.

    You cannot interchange them in other parts of speech:
    * Will you right this sentence for me?

    You cannot interchange them when 'right' means a direction or place, or the opposite of 'left', or something else:
    * Turn correct at the next corner.
    * I write with my correct hand.
