The UK's "labour productivity per hour-worked" is currently on a par with the average for the old EU
Now which comes closest in meaning to the phrase "on a par" ?
i) equal to
ii) of same value
Now , only one has to be the correct answer and I think both actually work in the given context because average is a number and being equal to it or being of the same value would not be different.So both option i) and ii) mean same to me but that is not correct right? So ,how do I get the closest meaning ?
EDIT: This is from a test question, and the question says only one is correct, so I am confused.
