Hi,
I am explaining a sequence of steps to be followed. What is the correct usage of the two:
To accomplish this, follow the below steps:
1.
2.

OR To accomplish this, follow the steps below:
1.
2.

I am told that I will have to retain the word "below" so no point in rephrasing. Kindly let me know the correct usage and the reason to substantiate.

Hi Guest. I'm moving your post to Gramnmar Section.

It's "the steps below". "below" and "above" in this context are generally post-nominal. It's a shortening of "the steps which are shown below".

In this case, "below" is used as an adverb. It's typical to find notes like "see below" or "follow the steps below" meaning "look at something/the steps written right after".

Hope this helps!
