My friend and I are discussing about a few commonly confused words. We have got two words could not get satisfied with the answer and explanation. Those are Sensible and Sensitive. We need to answer the two questions with the appropriate word.
The questions are:
a) Be careful when you comment about his fashion sense, he is very __________. (Sensible / Sensitive)
b) It is _________ to keep note of your passport number. (Sensible / Sensitive)
Could anyone of you help us explaining that which word will be the best choice for each question and why?
Please kindly explain another question too: why the other word cannot be used in place of the correct answer you have chosen.
Lots of Thanks,
b) sensible (prudent/wise)
