    Diff between accomplish and complete


    what is the difference between accomplish and complete word usage..?

    can we use them like

    1)I did this to accomplish certain function.
    2)I did this to complete certain function.

    which one is correct?

    Re: Diff between accomplish and complete

    to complete means "to finish"
    to accomplish means "to gain with effort"

    See the examples:
    I completed the work at 10.
    I'm happy because I accomplished the work successfully.

    If you say, I did something to complete it - you did the work to finish it and bring it to an end.
    If you say, I did something to accomplish it - you finished the work with effort.

    Was my explanation helpful?
