If I want to say "example" in a shorter way, should I use "ex." or "e.g."?
Can I use ex or e.g. for the word "example"? And is there any difference?

You can use e.g. or i.e. eg comes from "exempli gratia" in latin meaning for example ie comes from "id est" meaning that is
hi. U can use both
H.you would use e.g.
Hi, you would use ( eg.)
You can use “e.g”or you can simply say “ for example”.
you can use e.g , thanks.
Use e.g. (meaning - exempli gratia)
Many people think that ex. is an example abbreviation for "example" and use it as such. They would be wrong. The correct abbreviation to use when citing an example is e.g. Because ex. is an abbreviation for "exercise" using it properly would require talking about a school lesson or a part of a textbook.
I think that e/g. is what you are looking for
in written English e.g is more acceptable
