    What do you think it might mean, have you looked up "realm" in a dictionary?

    Re: Realm

    Realm | Define Realm at Dictionary.com

    You need a better dictionary. "Work area" is not a correct definition.

    While the dictionary's open, note the pronunciation. The word shares its derivation, but not its vowel sound, with 'real'.

    The difference is within the realm of chance?

    I opend another dictionary. Pronounciation does not sound like real. Even though at first I tried to pronounce it like "Realm".

    Meaning is - Domain, region, Kingdom. Do they have any mening to the above sentence?

    Re: Realm

    Try this definition:

    "the region, sphere, or domain within which anything occurs, prevails, or dominates:"

    Do you think "chance" might have this type of "realm"?

    So, if anything occurs = business

    difference is = Business sucess.

    Can we rewrite the sentence "The difference is within the realm of chance"

    Re: Realm

    I don't understand what you are trying to rewrite, or why "business success" is supposed to equal "difference is."

    Re: Realm

    This is the first time you have mentioned business in this thread. It doesn't appear to have any relevance at all to your original question.
