Hi,

Could you please tell me if I am correct in this idea? The difference between these two words is "beneath" is a higher register, same meaning anyway.


I can see it from [ below / beneath ] my apartment.

The cost is [ below / beneath ] $1000


I have two clothes [ inside / underneath ] my jacket. (Same meaning)


Cheers

No. Idiom or meaning demands one to the exclusion of the other pretty often.

I don't know what either sentence would mean.

Only "below". "Beneath" is more like "physically under": "Voles spend the arctic winters beneath the snow in networks of tunnels they make there."

"Clothes" is wrong. Let's make it "shirts". "Under" is the word you want here: "I have two shirts on under my jacket."
