    Re: difference between words

    Welcome to the forum, borhan.

    A couple of points that will make it easier for us to offer help:

    1. Post only one question per thread. If different people start answering different parts of your three questions, the thread will become almost impossible to follow. I suggest that you delete two of your questions from your first post, and start separate threads with them.

    2. You have looked the words up in a dictionary. Now try to use them in sentences. If we can tell you that you have used them correctly, this is satisfying for you. If you make mistakes, we may be able to see where your problems lie.
