Hi teachers,

Do "as appropriate" and "where appropriate" often mean the same thing?

Can they be interchangeable in these directions?

Complete these questions and answers with the present perfect forms of the given verbs and the adverb just as appropriate.

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Do "as appropriate" and "where appropriate" often mean the same thing? Sometimes.

Can they be interchangeable in these directions?

I would say not.

as appropriate - suggests to me that some change will probably needed inn each case.

where appropriate - suggests more strongly that in some cases nothing may be necessary.

Complete these questions and answers with the present perfect forms of the given verbs and the adverb just as appropriate.

If you have a bit of trouble understanding the term, do you think your readers willl understand it?

Hi Clive,

Thank you for the reply. I'll choose this one then.

Complete these questions and answers with the present perfect forms of the given verbs and the adverb just as appropriate.

Why? Because since 'as appropriate - suggests that some change will probably needed in each case', the question and answer use 'just' in a different place.

Example:

What has he just done?

He has just woken up.

At least that's what I think if I'm not mistaken.

If you have a bit of trouble understanding the term, do you think your readers willl understand it?

Well, for the readers it is much easier to understand 'where' than 'as'. They have already used 'where' many times, but they have never seen 'as' so far. That is why I've asked about them.

No offence intended.You have never offended me. I'm here to learn and I do from all the answers I get. But I really appreciate your concern.Emotion: wink
