    Can you please tell me if I used correctly the formal verbs ?

    Hi everybody,

    Can you please compare the italic verbs below and the formal answers of my choice?

    - They are brought on by overeating, a lack of experience, and cigarette smoking= I think it should be " they are caused by......."

    - Scientist are looking into innovative ways= investigate

    -This paper is trying to figure out....= determine

    Best regards
