[QUOTE=khinmghtwe;505002]What is the differences between the use of the words "varied and various"?
Robots can do more varied (kinds of) jobs/work.(Varried is adjective meaning exibting variety or incoporating a number of different kinds of things. So the word 'kinds' is redundent)
Robots can do (more) various (kinds of) physical work.(Various is also an adjective which means something of different kinds,as two or more things. So the words 'more' and 'different' are redundent. [/QUOTE]
As you can see, Various means two or more things different from each other. So it must be always used with a plural noun/verb. as: Various expriments, Various colors, Various reasons, There are various ways to answer yuor question.
This is not the case with varried, as:
He exibited a varied performance.
We met a varied group of people.
She had a lenghy and varied career.
