    Administration vs running

    In the following multiple-choice exercise:
    The job includes a huge amount of day-to-day ...
    a Administration B running C provision D conduct

    The correct answer is "administration". However, I can't see clearly why "running" is incorrect, as it means "the act of administering something, as in "He was responsible for the running of two companies"". Thank you

    Re: Administration vs running

    Yes but in the question it would mean literally running.

    If you use this word, you must make it clear that you mean its non-literal use. This is done by adding "of the company"

    The job includes the day-to-day running of the company.
