I can't find out the words with cues (number of the letters)
1. He can ill _ _ _ _ _ _ _ to fail any of his exams. (7 letters)
2. I'm not in the _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ of getting other people to do my work for me. (8 letters)
Please suggest me the answers.

I did it in an exam. Here is my answer:
1. afford (can ill afford = cannot afford)
However, afford has only 6 letters.
I can't think of any alternative to "afford", seven letters or otherwise. Both "habit" and "business" work but "habit" is more natural.
