    comprehension

    Dear teachers,

    Please read the following sentence:

    Stability is not immobility.
    I think it should be 'Stability is immobility'. Or is it possible that 'immobility' isn't a positive word?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    Re: comprehension

    mobility the ability to move one place to other.
    immobile means not moving. (but i m not sure immobility used for a noun.) on the contrary stability is not same thing.it is the condition of being strong steady and con not changing.eg: the satbility of dolar but not immobility of dolar.
