Hi Tzitziki,

I'm fairly sure you could figure this one out for yourself with the aid of a dictionary. The four words in the list above are very distinct, and not very confusable. Of course, if you haven't understood "stronger financial position" or something, that's a different matter.

Forgive me, Tzitziki, but it just sounds like a homework question to me. I don't get the impression there's a principle you're trying to grasp. Or if there is, I've missed it. It doesn't help anyone for me to do people's homework for them.

Please tell me WHAT IT IS THAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND and I will be more than happy to answer.


PS. You can ignore me if you like. There are plenty of other people here capable of answering questions like these.
PPS. If I have misunderstood, I apologize.
