Nuance "suit his purpose"
Posted by Miri Barak on November 08, 2004
Hello to you all
I would like to know the exact meaning of the expression suit his purpose in this context:
"To help the client find the right binoculars, telescope or barometer, the optician will show a selection that suits the client's purpose."
I want to be sure that this is not "to satisfy him" which is more common in my language than suit the purpose.
Thank you very much
