I wonder which choice fits best in my provided context and why?
- A colleague was complaining about an employee and I said to her “You know, he’s doing the best he can.” Not to mean that she should accept low performance, but to mean that if he is not the right person for this job, slamming him probably isn’t going to change that. She came back to me later and said “I heard what you said. He’s doing the best he can. We need to find him a suitable position where he can thrive.” And I said: “that’s right! You should ............. a task to someone who specializes it.
I think “b” is the correct answer; because, we often “delegate” tasks to a subordinate, while we can “entrust” a task / duty to anyone who we want them to do that for us and not necessarily an underling. However, I am not quite confident about it and need your confirmation on that. Besides, I am wide open to better suggestions.
