Thank you very much for your reply. Please read the following sentences:
1. Only in the present century has man acquired significant power to alter the nature of his world.
My question is: can I use change instead of alter?
2. To adjust to these chemicals would require not merely the years of a man's life but the life of generations.
My question is: can I use "to be geared to"?
3. Control must be geared to realities.
My question is: can I use 'adjust'?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
