Maybe you are in ccollege to train or retrain because you have recently experienced an upheaval in your life.
a. turmoil b. change
The given answer is 'a'. But I think 'b' is also correct. Is that right?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
Well, you may be right that you can't imagine an upheaval without a change, but no, it is not correct, because it does not convey the same restricted meaning: a strongly negative event. With b), the sentence could be read very positively, which is a vast change in overall meaning.
Think of an earthquake - the earth really does heave. (I don't know if that's etymologically correct, but it's a good way of remembering how 'earth-shattering' an upheaval is.)
Thank you very much for your explanation. So 'turmoil' is the answer. Is that right?
