The task involves creating groups of four business English words where three of the words are closely related and one is an outlier or less closely related. The groups are meant to showcase the diversity of vocabulary used in business English and demonstrate how some words have a more specific or technical meaning compared to others that are more general.

The groups should have a clear theme or topic and the three related words should have a clear connection or relationship to each other. The outlier word should not necessarily have a direct connection to the theme or topic of the group, but should still fit within the overall context of business English.

For example, a group might be composed of the words “Marketing”, “Advertising”, “Sales” and “Zoology”. The first three words are all related to the field of marketing and advertising, while “Zoology” is not related to the field and serves as the outlier in the group.

Creating groups of business English words is an exercise in vocabulary building and improving communication skills. By understanding the relationships between words, it is easier to use the right vocabulary in the right context, which can be particularly important in business communication. This task can also help in developing a deeper understanding of specific fields or topics in business.
