    normal VS usual

    It was still a ______ day as expected and nothing special happened.

    A, normal B. usual

    I cannot figure out the difference between the two in this case. The answer given is "usual". Can answer A also fit?

    Thanks!

    Of the two I would choose A. Where did you find this?

    In one of my exercise books.

    So you think this sentence is not naturally made, is it?

    What will a native put instead if it is not natural?

    It's OK with 'normal'.

    I'd also say 'normal' but I don't think 'usual' is wrong.
