    Can "represent" and "present" mean the same?

    The content and the style in which it is presented is designed to inspire and challenge teenagers.

    Can I say:

    The content and the style in which it is represented is designed to inspire and challenge teenagers.

    I know that these words are able to have absolutely different meanings, but It seems the same to me in this case.

    Re: Can "represent" and "present" mean the same?

    No.

    Look at the first definition for "present" under "verb"

    http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/d...nglish/present

    and the first definition under "verb" for "represent"

    http://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/d...lish/represent

    They are different.
