Hi,

I found out, essentially there are no much different in the word “conserve” and “reserve”. Can you correct me if I am wrong, please? means both words are ok for these sentences?


I tuned the light off to conserve/reserve the power.

I need to conserve/reserve more food for tomorrow.

I need to conserve/reserve some energy for my final exam.

I have a large conserve/reserve of water in my home.


Thanks a lot.

"I have heard that there is not much different between the words “conserve” and “reserve”. Please correct me if I am wrong. Does this mean that both words are ok in these sentences?"

Your examples sort of prove that there is quite a difference. I actually read the dictionary. You look up the two words and study the definitions, making sure you understand how they are used.
