    manage

    What exactly do you think is the difference between 'manage' and 'control'? How would you explain it?

    It depends on context.

    Re: manage

    You mean sometimes these words could be used interchangeably in some context? If so, would you come up with such context?

    I didn't say whether or not they could be used interchangeably. If you write some examples of how you think they might be used, we will comment on them.

    I thought not. And there is a difference.

    Is it impossible to even explain the overall difference between them?
