What is the difference between conflict and contention?
conflict involves disagreement; contention involves anger
conflicts can be avoided; contention cannot
they are the same thing
With which of the following are you most likely to have conflicts?
those whom you dislike
those whom you love most deeply
How can you avoid conflict in your relationships?
you cannot avoid conflict; it is an essential feature of relationships
submit to what your partner wants
come to an agreement before entering into a relationship
I agree with your third answer, but not the first two.
2. C? because I already tried and it said it was wrong
I would pick C for the second question. If your text has a different answer, that one will be considered "correct". If you disagree with someone you dislike, it's easy to avoid conflict. You just ignore them and go about your own business. If you disagree with someone significant in your life (a parent, spouse, sibling, friend, etc.), conflict may result. You must come to an agreement, agree to disagree, find compromise, etc., for the relationship to continue successfully.
Let me add that a relationship with a co-worker or team member is significant. You may dislike the person, but the relationship is significant, so conflict may well arise, and must be dealt with somehow.
what about question 1
