    The difference is expressed in the form

    The difference is expressed in the form of an error signal which is in turn used to induce a change in the system output, until the error is reduced to zero or near zero.


    The word "induce" is closest in meaning to ..... .

    1. reduce
    2. cause
    3. manifest
    4. seduce

    Would you please tell me why No.4 is better than No.2 here?( I'd choose both of them here)

    Thanks
