I have a question about the usage of "carry" and "hold". According to definition 9 for "carry" in this dictionary:
definition 9 (carry): to have (something) as a result or consequence
, and definition 10 for "hold" in the same dictionary:
definition 10 (hold): to have (a specified quality, feature, etc.)
, it seems the following is possibly standard English:
- The plan holds a lot of risks.
- The plan holds a lot of benefits.
- The plan carries a lot of risks.
- The plan carries a lot of benefits.
But I am not sure. What do native speakers think? Are some of the usages of "carry" and "hold" in sentences 1 thru 4 wrong?
