  1. The words "cheap" and "inexpensive" mean approximately the same thing, but they carry different connotations. "Cheap" implies that the inexpensive goods (sofa, in this case) are not well made, whereas "inexpensive" is simply referring to the price in comparison to something else.

    Basically, all three end up meaning the same thing, but with variation of wording.

    (Also, watch spelling ~~> sofa <~~ in #2.)

  2. Thank you. Then you mean #1 is the same as #2?
