Verluste eingrenzen / Verluste abgrenzen


Explanation:
This is difficult without further context. To cut losses, is to reduce losses that have occurred. Then the first answer would be right.
Verluste abgrenzen = is to set limits to losses, sometimes even in the sense of making a provisuion for potential losses.
Verluste eingrenzen = tio limit losses to a certain amount or type.
