    Confusion and subtleties


    English is full of subtleties.

    The choice of word can completely change the meaning of the sentence.

    Sometimes a single word in French is translated into two words in English to say the same thing and the choice depends on the grammatical construction of the sentence.

    That's why I have created this exercise. Find the correct answer from the list. Some answers are used more than once.

    Select the '-' if you think nothing needs to be added to make a correct sentence.
