    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    1. I felt a sharp anger against him for the predicament in which he had placed me. (A. Cronin)
    2. Here was a predicament, inasmuch as I was in a desperate hurry.

    predicament = a difficult, perplexing, or trying situation; a difficult, often embarrassing situation or condition

    Thanks for your efforts.
