Use of precisely
I wrote the sentence: "What does it precisely mean?". The Grammarly tool sugests me to change the word "precisely" to make the sentence clearer. I changed to "What does precisely it mean?". Now, it is telling me that the verb "mean" must be written like "means". I didn't understand.
\\si What does precisely it mean?
You should also be aware that precise doesn't necessarily equate to accurate. The easiest way to understand the difference is to think of accuracy as describing how correct something is and precision as describing how detailed something is.
An answer to a question can be very precise. It may go into great detail on the subject and offer a complete explanation. If the information given is wrong, it is inaccurate but still precise.
