I have been confused about the words various and different.
This is an example sentence from NY Times:
At various times over the years, as their investments only widened and deepened, they were blind to what the lawsuit calls a litany of alarms sounded by those close to them, by fellow investors and by financial institutions.
Could it be at different times? I feel not.
Has there already been a post or a link to explain the difference between these words?
Thank you in advance.
At various times suggests a number of occasions, but at different times could be only two.
