Confused exercises: I think you'll find that the inconvenience of the diet is...

Hello,

I am having some questions to consult you about.Please look at the exercise below:

Choose the best answer to fill in the blank:

  1. You’ better pack those glasses extremely carefully if you want them to arrive…

A.entire B.intact C.whole D.complete

The answer is ‘‘B’’ but I don’ understand the four words above have the same meaning.Please help me :oops:

  1. I think you’ll find that the inconvenience of the diet is …by the benefits.

A.outranked B.overthrow C.overbalanced D.outweigh

My teacher said the correct answer was ‘‘D’’. Why ? :frowning: .I even don’ understand the meaning of the sentence .Can you help me?

  1. A food processor has become an indispensable piece of… in the home.

A.tool B.device C.gadget D.equipment.

I chose ‘‘B’’ but the correct is "d’’. Why? I don’ understand , is this true that they have the same meaning?

Help me!!!

.
1-- only intact means ‘unbroken’

2-- only outweigh means ‘have more value or importance’

3-- only equipment is uncountable and therefore requires the counter ‘piece’

Although many words have similar meanings, what is more important when learning vocabulary is their differences in meaning and use.
.

So can you show me the meaning of sentence 2?

#2 means that the benefits are of more value than the “bad sides” of the diet. In other words, the speaker recommends the diet.

P.S. I have a question for Mister Micawber. Sir, why not “outweighed”?

.
Yes, outweighed. I was ignoring the typographic error.
