    choose, select, and pick

    hello Sir,

    These three words, choose, select ,and pick, have been confusing me.

    Could you please explain the differences between them? I'd appreciate your


    all the best

    Re: choose, select, and pick

    In meaning they are pretty much the same, so there are contexts where one is more likely to be used. For instance, in a shop, I would 'pick' my fruit, not 'select' as this seems more formal. Similarly, companies have a slection process for new recruits, not a picking one.
