Student or Learner
Please have a look at this question:
John says that his present job does not provide him with enough _____ for his organizing ability.
When I met this question, I chose B on automatic pilot but then I saw the answer was A.
I have googled that both "scope of his ability" and "space for his ability" have many hits and the hit number of the latter is larger. So I feel somewhat confused.
What are your opinions about the choices A and B?
Is that "people" can have enough scope to do something while "ability" can't?
space: the freedom and scope to live, think, and develop in a way that suits one
a teenager needing her own space.
It seems that "space" can be used in an abstract way.
What have I got lost here?
