    expedition vs exploration

    Hi, I've got this exercise where I need to choose the correct option:
    On........................ to the North Pole, the members of the group have to ensure a very high calorie intake.
    a. explorations b. exhibitions c. expeditions
    Apparently, the correct answer is c. expeditions, so could somebody explain to me the difference between "explorations" and "expeditions"? Please?

    Re: expedition vs exploration

    exploration - to travel for the purpose of discovery
    expedition - a journey organized for a particular purpose

    Exploration can be used in a context where the target hasn't been discovered yet, whilst expedition can be used almost in every context...

    ------
    Correct me if I wrong!
