    Default a few collocations of "inferior"

    Dear teachers,

    Would you share with me your opinion concerning the following sentences?

    These goods are of inferior quality.

    inferior = bad, mean, poor

    It is thus that mediocre people seek to lower great men.

    mediocre = inferior

    A great person gets more by obliging his inferior than by disdaining him.

    inferior = a person lower in station, rank, intellect, etc., than another

    A lieutenant is inferior to a captain.

    He is inferior in rank.

    He always felt inferior to his brother.

    He felt inferior to them.

    He is inferior to this task

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    I think mediocre is not as bad as inferior.
