what's the different when using "plus" and the word "and"?
For example,
the choices to the problem were:
1. Cronkite was known for his honest presentation of the news PLUS his reassuring tone
2.Cronkite was known for his honest presentation of the news AND his reassuring tone


Thanks.

    They both have about the same meaning.

    But then the answer was choice 2.

    The word "plus" is not a conjunction except in informal speech:

    The sentence requires a conjunction to join those two phrases.
