    @JonathanReez This isn't a duplicate. It's asking for the meaning of a specific piece of notation which is, essentially, an English-language question. – David Richerby Feb 23 '17 at 12:49

what does v 4.2- v 4.10 mean?

All this "V" business refers to Appendix V of the Immigration Rules. V 4.2 for example means "Appendix V, Paragraph 4, Subparagraph 2" and so on.

does "-" mean from v4.2 to v4.10 that includes v4.3, v4.4 etc until v4.10 or does it mean just v4.2 and v4.10

It means each and every Paragraph and Subparagraph between 4.2 and 4.10 inclusive.

V 4.2 (a) (c) (e)

They got you on V 4.2 Subparagraphs a, c, and e. It means they concluded that you are not a genuine visitor and will likely go underground once you get here and then ultimately try to access the welfare state. We have an abundance of that type of refusal in the archives here and it's worth checking it out. The part about the disparity between your plans and the invitation letter is just icing on the cake, if you fix the other stuff, this reason will drop out by default.

  • thank you very much for your clarification...May I ask how sure you are about the meaning of "-" and why they think all the paragraphs here from4.2 to 4.10 can't be met by the applicant? mind you the applicant only did not meet the requirements on v 4.2 (a)(c)(e) and never give an intention of dis approving the paragraps from v4.3 to v4.10 – pob martin Jul 25 '16 at 14:14

    @pobmartin: The dash "-" is used to indicate an inclusive range, otherwise a comma "," would be used, indicating a list. – RedGrittyBrick Jul 25 '16 at 14:49
  • @pobmartin, they pick which paragraphs apply and use the associated formulae. – Gayot Fow Jul 25 '16 at 17:41
