1 Answer | Add Yours
The terms tabloid and broadsheet refer primarily to different types of newspaper classified primarily on the basis of the size of paper used. Tabloids are substantially smaller than broadsheets. There is no established standard for the size of the newspapers but generally the size of tabloids is 11"x17", while that of broadsheet is 11.75"x21.5".
There is fixed rule regarding the type of reading material contained in these two type of papers, but the tabloids generally tend to contain information on less serious matters such as entertainment and fashion, while broadsheet are primarily devoted to news on serious matters such as politics, government, business and industry.
