    What exactly do you think is the difference between 'manage' and 'control'? How would you explain it?

    You mean sometimes these words could be used interchangeably in some context? If so, would you come up with such context?

    I didn't say whether or not they could be used interchangeably. If you write some examples of how you think they might be used, we will comment on them.

    I thought not. And there is a difference.

    Is it impossible to even explain the overall difference between them?
