    Do resolution and solution have the same meaning or slightly difference?

    Hi Dear,

    RESOLUTION (n) RESOLVE (v)
    SOLUTION (n) SOLVE (v)



    Do resolution/resolve and solution/solve have the same meaning or slightly difference?


    Thanks,

    I think they have the same meaning. But I am not sure.

    I have checked a similar thread here. But not satisfied.

    Here is a context; "a successful resolution to the crisis" found in a dictionary. If they have the same meaning, we are able to use "solution" instead of "resolution", aren't we?

    You could use 'solution' in that phrase. But, they're different words. They don't have the same meaning.

    Re: Do resolution and solution have the same meaning or slightly difference?

    My simplified take is that 'resolution' is an answer to a problem or situation, 'solution' is the answer.

    Resolution" is as answer to a problem or a situation; okay! clear. "Solution" is the answer; it is okay too. But "solution" is the answer of what? That's not clear. Can't "solution" be the answer of a problem too? For instance; when we solve a problem, we might say the problem is solved. Then here, isn't the "solution" the answer of a problem?

    Also, do people find resolution or solution for global issues?

    One thing I understood is that "resolution" has variety of meaning where "solution" has only one.

    Both words have several meanings.

    In the 'answer' range of meanings, 'solution' is, in my opinion more precise. It is the only correct word for, for example, mathematics problems and crossword puzzles.
