    plunged, tumbled, and slumped

    Hi,

    Question:

    For each BLUE word in my sentence, do they mean reduced quickly, reduced sharply, or reduced quickly and sharply?

    Sentence:
    The price plunged, tumbled, and slumped from $1000 to $200.

    Thanks

    What difference do you see between "the price reduced quickly" and "the price reduced sharply"?
