Edward: Hey Lucy, how are you doing?
Lucy: I’m not bad Edward, but I’m in a dilemma.
Edward: Why Lucy?
Lucy: I’m not sure about what subjects to choose for the 5th semester…
Edward: Oh! I see. What are your options?
Lucy: Probability and Statistics, Differential and Integral Calculus or Cybernetics and Information Technology. Which one is the easiest?
Edward: Well, it depends on your Math skills, but I think that Probability and Statistics is the easiest subject.
Lucy: And which subject is the hardest?
Edward: Maybe Differential and Integral Calculus, people say that it’s challenging. However, for me Cybernetics and Information Technology is the handiest subject in these days.
Lucy: Thank you for helping me decide.
Edward: Anyway, your decision depends on your major choice.
Lucy: Uhmm, that’s another dilemma...
In the previous situation Edward says that:
- Probability and Statistics is the easiest subject.
- Differential and Integral Calculus is the hardest one.
- Cybernetics and Information Technology is the funniest of them all.
In these sentences Edward expresses that one subject has a high quality that the other two subjects don’t have.
