agree  Maricica W.: numai pentru duty
4 hrs

agree  Cristina Moldovan do Amaral: duty
5 hrs

neutral  Anca Nitu: duty pare ok, TE ROG nu te supara, allegiance si bond sunt cu totul inafara

  -> bond = 4 a binding agreement; covenant. De fapt, "duty" e cel mai slab dintre sinonime.

agree  Bogdan Burghelea: brief - only 50% agree; instruction - 100% agree; terms of reference - better in a different context

  -> certainly, professionals like lawyers, are 'instructed' and receive instructions.

neutral  Anca Nitu: some of the above answers are wrong, you are playing on "instruction" or a reprt of some kind, this is not the case, it's something between comission or duty, something that the " comerciant" is supposed to de according to contract
19 hrs
  -> Oh, well. Assignment then.
