    undergo/go through/ be faced with/ encounter/ sustain/ endure

    Which choices do best fit in the following sentence?

    If you don't pay the cargo price on time, you will undergo/go through/ be faced with/ encounter/ sustain/ endure demurrage costs.

    Thank you

    Have you tried looking up these words in one or more of the dictionaries at www.onelook.com. or looking for example sentences containing them at fraze.it? If you did that, you could quickly eliminate some of the inappropriate words.

    Thank you.
    Note my changes above. Don't put a space after a / mark when it's in a list of choices or alternatives.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you again. I think 'incur' is the best option we can use in the sentence.
    If you don't pay the cargo price on time, you will incur demurrage.
