    I have a question about the use of "sections".

    Hi, teachers.

    Can 'sections' mean parts or components?
    I looked it up in the dictionary, it says so.

    Can you please see the sentence below?
    If I put 'sections' in the blank, how does it sound?

    I just feel that it doesn't right.
    I need your opinions.

    Thank you ^^

    No, that doesn't work. You could use "parts" or "components", for example.

    It sounds a little strange to me. I'd use "pieces".
    That doesn't mean the dictionary is wrong in saying that 'sections' can mean parts or components.
