    hi I am Mr. Yu from south korea.

    What is the meaning of 'leverage' when it is used in the form of verb?

    I thought it is like 'use' or 'utilize'.

    What are the differences between 'utilize' and 'leverage'?

    You use something to create a specific advantage. You use it as a lever.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
