Dear Sir, what do they mean Compelling and Privilege here? 1. The benefits of computer use in education are COMPELLING. 2. The negative aspect of the freedom to express you won ideas is that some people abuse this PRIVILEGE.

Hello amit_ck,

You can find the meanings of 'compelling' (2) and 'privilege' (2) in the dictionary. In the future, please tell us what definitions you have found -- we can confirm if you've understood correctly or not.

All the best,

There are several meaning of compelling like reason/argument/case/need/desire/urge/very interesting or exciting, so that you have to pay attention Privilege means very interesting or exciting, so that you have to pay attention/something that you are lucky to have the chance to do, and that you enjoy very much/a situation in which people who are rich or of a high social class have many more advantages than other people/a situation in which doctors, lawyers etc are allowed to keep information about their discussions with their patients or clients secret from other people/the right to do or say something unacceptable without being punished, especially in Parliament Sir, If I rephrase my previous examples of Compelling and Privilege what will be meaning there.

Hello amit_ck,

The numbers in brackets (2) are the numbers of the dictionary entries that I think that best explain the meanings of these words here.

All the best,

Kirk
