    Paraphrasing some sentences with financial terms in it

    Hi, i have problem with few sentences.
    At the moment im studying for an english test that i have in 2 days, and in my book i found few tasks i just dont understand really(like how to paraphrase nest egg or monopoly).
    I need to paraphrase these lines seperatly:

    Economics may help your invest the nest egg you have saved from your earnings.


    If infinite quantities of every good could be produced, people would not worry about the efficient use of scarce resources.


    Economists have no monopoly on the truth.


    While actual application of such information requires advanced tools in probability and econometrics, understanding the results requires only common sense.


    No sooner do we begin to understand our world than we become captives of our own knowledge.

    Re: Paraphrasing some sentences with financial terms in it

    When you paraphrase, you look at the whole sentence, not individual words or noun phrases.

    e.g. #1
    A knowledge of economics will help you invest your life savings wisely.

    I think you should try paraphrase the other sentences yourself; we can then have a look at the paraphrases for you.
