What is pangram?

A sentence with all the letters in an alphabet is called pangrams. Each letter in the alphabet must be used in a sentence at least once in order to be accepted as a pangram. If each letter in the alphabet is used only once to make a meaningful sentence, then, it is called “perfect pangram”.

Pangrams are also called “holoalphabetic sentence” or “alphabet sentence”.
