    it is hard to see that a person can have a rewarding career without a sound education

    Hello

    "I don't believe that academic achievement equates with a successful life.
    Obtaining good grades at school is a separate issue from making the most of your life. However, it is hard to see that a person can have a rewarding career without a sound education and appropriate qualifications ; for example a degree. "



    According to the following link, which definition does suit most?
    definition #5 or #2?
    I think that #2 is most appropriate, as it means 'complete' or 'through' .
