    Dear teachers,

    A clear apprehension of this abstract idea was necessary to a right understanding.

    She is quick of apprehension.
    I am filled with the most fearful apprehensions.
    I was dogged by a feeling of apprehension.
    Her excitement was tinged with a faint sense of apprehension.
    She shrugged, aware of a sudden apprehension.
    I am under apprehension of my life.
    When I saw him I had a feeling of apprehension that something had gone wrong.
    We felt apprehension for their safety.
    I am apprehensive of you.
    We were apprehensive that they might forget.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,
