I'm preparing a mind map on a particular topic in which all the information is missing and have to be found. As an instruction, shall I write: "fill in the mind map" or "Fill out the mind map?". Thanks for your help.

  • Besides, concerning just questions or answers with missing words in them, which is correct: "Fill in" or "Fill out" the questions/answers below? – zenith3 May 21 '17 at 9:01

    Don't know a lot about mind maps, but we generally fill out forms (completing an entire form) but fill in blank spaces (within a form). – user3169 May 21 '17 at 18:29

You could use either

Fill out the mind map

relating to the form in general, or

Fill in, the missing gaps in, the mind map

the spaces in-between.
