Metamorphosis

Meaning : Manner or process in which an organism changes itself or any of its part.

— Example sentences : Caterpillar undergoes metamorphosis to become butterfly.

— Trick to remember this word -> Let’s first break this word in three parts : 1. Meta, 2. Morph and 3. Osis
‘Meta’ means “referring to itself”; ‘Morph’ means “forms”; ‘Osis’ means “process”. Hence, Metamorphosis is the “process” of changing of “forms” of “itself” i.e., transformation from one form to another form of an organism.
