Describe the challenge.

A prompt is a group of words or a single word that is entered into an AI application like ChatGPT or Gemini. The tool then makes an attempt to comprehend and analyze the input before automatically producing a response.

How to create a strong prompt message

What qualities distinguish an effective prompt? You should bear the following in mind as you create your ChatGPT or Gemini prompts: Make sure your commands are specific and understandable. Stay away from phrases with lots of subpoints. Make use of simple, concise phrases as opposed to long ones. Always make an effort to be specific in your questions and to clarify their context. ChatGPT and Gemini will produce better results in this manner. Be mindful of the language you use in your suggestions. Select phrases that are simple to grasp and aid the tool in understanding the context.
