    I posted the question because the key is 'battle' and because in Longman dictionary it defined the word 'to take action in an organized way in order to oppose something bad or harmful'. And in the dictionary compiled by Chinese lexicographers it has the collocation 'to combat with/against'. That's why I got confused.
    Now I see where the problem lies.

    Have a nice weekend.

    You're very welcome, Jiang. :wink:
