ENGLISH WORD POWER THROUGH WORD PAIRS – PART 1
Today it is all about a terms (word pairs) which you would be in need of almost every single day in your life…..
Let’s slowly peep into them…. just going by the flow……
1. So what?
This could be used in the sense “What…. because of doing an act or action”…. meaning it is very much ok….

I shall ask my brother to drop me out there at school.
2. Why me?
Hey…. that is actually quite important and common as well….. as most often many of us would use it…..
This could be used in situations when you want to express “Why should it happen to me… or why it is me”….. meaning that you didn’t want those bad stuff happening it to you….. and you would have felt that you have committed no fault……
This is most often used by us when we feel a bit frustrated with life’s problems or mishaps…..
As humans we would feel…. probably it could have not happened or at least that…. it could have happened to some one else…..

3. Why so?
This could be used in the sense that “Why is something like that”

Why so? That’s too bad…
4. Is it?
This means you are just on doubt “whether it is actually so”…. when things are actually a little unbelievable you could probably use it…..

5. Am I?
This is used in the sense “when you are pretty unsure regarding something related to your own self”
