    Broad, Large, Wide View

    Are broad view, large view and wide view the same, as in:


    1. "He took a broad view of the situation."
    2. "He took a large view of the situation."
    3. "He took a wide view of the situation."

    Re: Broad, Large, Wide View

    1 and 3 are OK. 2 doesn't work in that context. The most common and natural use with "view" is "broad".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
