    Vocabulary Building Group!(Answers)

    :thankyou2: for giving answers.

    Dear Bipasu.,
    Ur 3rd,4th & 5th answers r correct.

    & I want to explain the answers of first 3 Synonyms .

    1.Adapted-Adapted in this sentense means written and changed forthe theatre
    2.fit--
    3.Adapt--To make suitable to or fit for a specific use or situation
    4.Accommodate
    5.Suit
    6.Adapted.

    The verb “adapt” means to change and make suitable for a different use or for new conditions: to adapt a book for children; the eye adapts to dark/light; to adapt to a new situation; adapt one’s way of thinking; to adapt to a new climate, etc.

    The verb “accommodate” means to make suitable, it implies some sacrifice on the part of the person accommodating for the convenience of the person accommodated. It is preferred to “to adapt” when compromise is to be suggested.
    to accommodate statements to facts; to accommodate your plans to somebody else’s plans; to accommodate to social change, etc.

    Okie dokie..
    Bye :wave
