This is the sentences:
Although this book has taken on revered status, much of it remains helpful and relevant.
Which word you would choose to replace 'taken on' in this sentences.
how would you explain excatly the same thing in this sentences but with other words.
"Although this book has taken on revered status, much of it remains helpful and relevant."
And the sentence doesn't make sense. If the book has become revered, wouldn't that indicate that it's more likely, rather than less, that much of it remains helpful and relevant. So, "although" is used wrongly.
I understand your explanations last bit. although is used wrongly.
but the rest of your explanation I didn't understand at all.
The implication of "revered" here is that the book has been around for a long time. A better way to phrase the sentence is:
Although this revered book is a bit dated, much of it remains helpful and relevant. With that revision, the contrast is set up between "dated" and "remains helpful and relevant". That works because dated things are not always relevant in modern times.
