There is an essay topic which sounds like this:
Some people think that it is better for children to grow up in the city, while others think that life in the countryside is more suitable.
There is a task to rephrase the topic. It is not mandatory to replace all the words in a sentence with synonyms, but what if we want to replace "suitable" with "appropriate"?
It is often argued that it is better for children to grow up in a town, while others believe that life in the suburb is more appropriate.
Appropriate stands for "suitable or proper in the circumstances." By the definition, we cannot use "appropriate" in the sentence above. Please correct me if you think we can.
