Customers began to complain that their Wi-Fi routers were ________ connectivity.
A. losing
B. loosing


Answer: A

Lose is a verb. To lose is to suffer a loss, to be deprived of, to part with, or to fail to keep possession of.

Loose is an adjective used to describe things that are not tightly fitted.

For an easy trick to remember the difference, think of this phrase: A gambler who is loose with his money may lose money.

    Loose--Lose, Except--Accept, In lieu of--In view of, apostrophe used to indicate plurals (article's instead of articles) are all confusions I see arising in the past 10 years or so. Probably the advent of laptops, smartphones, tablets and the easy access to Internet is the reason for this.
