Wild monkeys are a problem for many areas in Japan. Every year they cause heavy damage to crops._______ the farmers are fighting back.

In the above blank whether though or however should be used. I am confused. I searched for the difference between though and however but did not find anything satisfactory.

Wild monkeys are a problem for many areas in Japan. Every year they cause heavy damage to crops. However, the farmers are fighting back.

That should be the correct answer since the word is used to introduce a remark that contrasts with or appears to contradict anything previously said.

You can use though since it's synonymous with however, but 'however' is a much better word to use. Unless you change though with although, only then.

  • Whether isn't really a choice since it's used where you demonstrate that two things can happen. Or rather stating that a remark applies to whatever possibilities are in a situation.

  • If you can't add commas, then though is the answer. Also, I'm confused are you indicating that only whether, however or though should be used, or whether however or though should be used? Commented Oct 8, 2021 at 8:49
