One thing you can do is ask a question and have Google to ‘fill in the blank’ for you. You can do this by adding an asterisk “*” in the part of the sentence or question that you want filled in. For example, you can search for the person who invented the parachute by entering “The parachute was invented by *”.
Another technique and to find the synonym of a word. To seach for food facts and nutrition and cooking information you would enter ~food ~facts.
