    Thumbs down do the three sentences carry the same meaning?

    1) Put it(anything) in separation.

    2) Put it apart.

    3) Put it separatively.

    do the sentences above express same meaning?

    Thank you.

    Re: do the three sentences carry the same meaning?

    The sentences number 1 and 3 i.e. "Put it in separation." and "Put it separately." seem to imply the same meaning but i think sentence number 2 "put it apart."has a different meaning. There should be "Put it aside." in order to have the same meaning as sentence number 1 and 3.

    As they stand, #2 sounds odd, and #1 and #3 do not even sound acceptable English. Can you give us some more context? what exactly are you trying to say?
