    admit and acknowledge

    Dearr teachers,

    Can I use "acknowledged" in the place of "admitted" in the following sentence?

    Teh boy admitted picking up the purse. But he denied having killed the woman.

    Looing forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    No you cannot. You can substitute confess for admit.
