I am try to make the distinction between probity and integrity. It seems that these two words have the same meaning. Could you please help me understand if there is any slight difference between these two verbs and if are just the same when do you use each of them.
You're right, they do seem very similar.
The difference to me is that I had to look up "probity" because I had never read it before. I have a relatively large vocabulary, so it's okay to assume that "integrity" is a far more common word to express this idea.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
