    Default What is the differences between in the case of and in terms of ?

    Hello Everyone,

    What is the distinguishing difference between " in the case of " and "in terms of " and can you give me some examples?
    In the sentence "The amount of fruit in fruit juices must be 6% in the case of berries and 10% in the case of other fruits" Can we use in terms of instead of in the case of ?


    For Chinese mind, the sentence"It's too early to start talking in terms of casualties " is equal to "It is too early to start talking casualties." Can you tell me the differences of the two sentence?

    What is the meaning of this sentence-"Femininity is still defined in terms of beauty."?

    And can "in terms of " in the following sentence be replaced by "with regard to" or "about"?

    Did the experiment find any differences in terms of what children learned?

    Thanks and best regards!
