2. What does N/A mean in forms?

Not applicable

When filling out forms offline or online, people may use "N/A" when the question or information does not apply to them. For example, if you are filling out your health records and there is a question asking you for your surgery history, you can add "N/A" to communicate no surgery history (the question is "not applicable" to you).

You may see N/A used in other contexts, as well. One example includes databases as a substitute for "null" as another way to say the information for the field is unknown. Another example is to comment on a procedure that you haven't overlooked a step, just that no information is applicable for that step.
