    Smile superannuate

    1)please let me know the correct usage of the word "superannuate". one can superannuate himself (i.e... I superannuated in 1960)

    is it correct to say?
    he was superannuated in his age of 60

    2)What is the difference between bias and contrast. I saw a sentence in an article " his actions contrasted". but the word bias also gives the same meaning "favoritism"


    thanks a lot

    Re: superannuate

    #1 No, you cannot superannuate yourself. You are superannuated - he was superannuated at the age of 60.

    #2 bias =
    inclination or prejudice in favour of a particular person, thing, or viewpoint

    contrast = the state of being noticeably different from something else when put or considered together.

    "his actions contrasted" - without context = his actions were noticeably different from someone else's actions.
