Question

Which sentence uses the word "fuel" correctly? She will fuel her work if she finishes it on time. The good feedback on her writing will fuel her confidence. The article will fuel the time and place of the celebration. She will fuel many sources to write the news story.

Answer

One should note that among the given sentences, it is only “the good feedback on her writing will fuel her confidence” that employs the word fuel correctly. The other statements tend to miss the mark. Fuel functions essentially as a means of enhancing or reinforcing another entity, in the same way that fuel powers a vehicle. In this case, receiving positive feedback will serve to augment the subject’s confidence.
