Are prepositions, articles & determiners counted in precis writing? When we're given a passage to summarize it in some words??

First, the word you need for the title of your thread is grammar, not grammer.

Second, precis writing is not telegraphic style writing.

A telegraphic style condenses writing by omitting articles, pronouns, conjunctions, and transitions. Engineers often use the telegraphic style for instructions and specifications thinking that it’s more concise. However, telegraphic style writing forces the reader to supply the missing words, which creates the potential for ambiguity or misunderstanding.

While writing a precis, you need:
- conciseness
- clarity
- completeness
- unity
- coherence.

It's actually spelled GRAMMAR. I am a bad speller too but you might wish to make an effort and try to remember the spelling of THAT particular word...

And yes, all words are counted in a summary.
