    sufficient

    Dear teachers,

    I have learned words: sufficient, enough, abundant and adequate. They are a little bit confusing. I put them to different degrees from less to more. Could you see if I am right or not?

    sufficient----adequate-----enough-----abundant.

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