Hello. Please help me with a few lexical questions.
1)Is it possible to use "spot" in the following context: "the scandal spotted his political reputation"?
2) Is it possible to say "Hosni Mubarak was a)discharged b)dismissed c) dismissed from power" (meaning "ousted, removed from power")?
3)Is it possible to say "dismissed or discharged president" (meaning "ousted president"?
Thank you very much for your answers.
