I have some questions about differences between:
1) 'be able to' and 'be capable of'
- Able is followed by an infinitive. If someone is able to do something, they can do it and it is not unusual or surprising if they do it: 'The doctor said that after a few years I'd be able to get out of bed'. 'Will you be able to play on Saturday?'
- Capable is followed by the preposition of and a gerund/participle. If someone is capable of (doing) something, they do not usually do it, but it is possible for them to do it if they want to: 'I'm sure he's quite capable of getting here on time, but he can't be bothered'. 'The power station is capable of generating enough electricity for the whole region'
2) 'remainder' and 'rest' - What should be used in maths: 5/3=1 remainder or
- In Maths it should be 'remainder'
3) dish and bowl - I have soup in a dish or in a bowl ?
- dish: a flat shallow container for cooking food in or serving it from: a glass dish: an ovenproof dish ; a baking / serving dish ; They helped themselves from a large dish of pasta.
- bowl: (especially in compounds) a deep round dish with a wide open top, used especially for holding food or liquid: a salad / fruit / sugar, etc. bowl ; a washing-up bowl
Basically a dish is shallower than a bowl. I would normally eat soup from a soup-bowl.
Hope this helps
