    Re: A question

    Economic is concerned with the economy or money that a society or an individual has. Economical is spending or using something in a careful manner.

    Lest is a conjunction. It is used in a sense of preventing something from happening e.g work hard lest you be failed. He ran lest he be caught by the angry mob. Its synonym is "in case."

    Am I right tdol
