Y/N: Yes/No

Y/N is an abbreviation of "Yes/No".

It is an expression,q which is commonly used in the Gmail platform. It is written in the subject or in the body of the email to tell the recipient that the mail requires a reply from the recipient with a yes or no. It is done when the sender wants a reply from the recipient in a very short interval. Mentioning Y/N increases the chance of the recipient to reply soon. Firstly it informs the recipient that the email requires a reply in the format yes or no. Secondly since in the email, it is written Y/N, it indicates that no long reply is required for the email which increases the chance of the recipient to reply to the email. If it is written in the email Y/N, it means that the sender wants the reply to the email from the recipient in the format yes or no.

Let us take an example to make it easy to understand.

In an email, if it is written:
Meeting tomorrow in Room 2002 at 2:00 P.M. Y/N?

This shows that the email contains a message which requires a reply from the recipient with a yes or no.

Now, these days, the demands of acronyms are very high on social media online chatting or messaging, so the users usually use Y/N as a replacement for Yes/No.

So, in this way, the abbreviation Y/N is used mostly on the social media platform.

While this slang is very common in social media platforms, mainly email messaging, still many are unaware of this slang.

So, basically in emails if you want to inform the other person that the email requires the reply from the recipient with a simple yes or no, you can simply write Y/N, instead of writing Yes/No. Writing Y/N seems professional, provides strong communication, with fewer efforts and good time management.
