Various Vs Different

No view

Hi, Can you help me to better use or correctly use the words 'various ' and 'different '. It gets to be confusing when they both seem to be good in certain sentential contexts. need advice from various groups/different groups of people from various levels/different levels of academic backgrounds have choices to .5 Answers. They are synonyms. Similar to what RegDwight pointed out, there is usually a connotation of many with "various," whereas "different" often refers to distinctions between 2 things. For this usage, I think "various" is better, because "different" implies a comparison..
