    1) are bookkeeper and accountant the same?

    1) are bookkeeper and accountant the same?
    2) Am I right if I say:" You can avoid the risk of obsesity when you take in less food"?
    3) What is the English for "the quality of the road" in this context: "If I could change one important thing about my country, I would improve the quality of the roads, there are too many potholes on the street. " Does the sentence sound OK?
    4) Does this sentence sound right:" Too many people have lost their lives as well as properties in that deluge?". I wonder if there are any word which can replace "properties" here.

    Bookkeeper = The person who keeps an exact record of the money that has been spent or received by a business or other organization

    Accountant = a person who examines the records of money received, paid and owed by a company or person.

    2) Am I right if I say:" You can avoid the risk of obsesity when you take in less food"?
    You can avoid obesity by eating less

    3) What is the English for "the quality of the road" in this context: "If I could change one important thing about my country, I would improve the quality of the roads. There are too many potholes on the street. " Does the sentence sound OK?

    Split it into two sentences. You don't need "on the street" - you have already mentioned "roads".

    4) Does this sentence sound right:" Too many people have lost their lives as well as properties in that deluge."? I wonder if there are any word which can replace "properties" here. You could say "their homes" - but if they have lost their lives, losing their homes is irrelevant.

    Yes, you can, or "some lost their homes in the flood".

    Some lost their lives, while others lost their homes (or property).
