    find the ways/solutions

    We may come across many difficulties in our lives. When you can't find the ________ (ways, solutions), try to have a side step and take another look at them, you will get satisfying approaches.

    The answer is 'ways'. Is it the word 'approaches' at the end of the sentence that determines the answer? I chose the 'solutions'.

    Thank you in advance.

    It's a very badly written sentence, neither option makes it any better.
