    Solution Vs Resolution

    What is the difference between SOLUTION and RESOLUTION?

    Is each word used in different situations. Do they have overlapping meanings? Can a problem have a solution but no resolution?

    Please help shed some light over this and remember to be gentle
    with critiscism since I am not a native English speaker

    Re: Solution Vs Resolution

    Yes, a problem can have a solution but never be resolved (resolution)

    The man and his wife did not get along, so the solution was to get a divorce. However, there was never a resolution to the problem since she refused to sign the papers.
