What is difference between sit down and sit up?
This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information. See the FAQ for guidance on how to improve it.
If you're standing, you can sit down.
If you're lying, you can sit up.
If you're slouching in a chair untidily, you should sit up. It's better for your back.
