I know four words here which seem to be quite synonymous to me. But I don't know how they sound to you and which one fits better here in my example.
Here are the words with their definitions! Please have a look on them and let me know which one(s) is/are the proper word(s) and why?
Also, please let me know about the possible slight nuances between them.
