Generally, we would use .doc or .docx to mark items or write proposal but most of people would convert the .doc file into .pdf since PDF is easy to read and it will not change the style of the file even though you open it in different devices or apps. Besides, others cannot modify what you create, especially for the writers, which is good for copyright protection. However, the size of PDF is always larger than document, so sometimes people may tend to reduce the file size.
