    Repertoire

    Hi, teachers, I would like to know the meaning of "repertoire" in the following sentence.

    "Efficacious people employ a range and have repertoire of alternative strategies for problem-solving."

    Heap of thanks.

    Re: Repertoire

    In this context, repertoire simply means range - so there is repetition in the sentence. Grammatically, there should be an extra "a" before "repertoire". Even so, I think the sentence could have been better phrased. I would have said something like "Efficacious people have, and employ, a repertoire of alternative strategies for problem-solving".

    Thanks, karlvh.
    Does the "repertoire" in the following sentence have another meaning?
    "Flexibility is the cradle of humor, creativity and repertoire."
