We can say for example:
It suffices to say that...
But I wonder if a similar verb exists that can be used for people(humans), e.g:
He only (...) to explain the first part and skips over the second part, however, I find the second part more difficult. (I want to say: He(the author) has decided to avoid explaining the second part, because he has thought that it's been so uncomplicated_which is not the case about me of course_)
I know that I could say this
He only explains the first part and...
and also this one
He neglects to explain the second part and only explains the first part, however,...
but I feel I've heard another way for saying it too. I'm just trying to figure out if such word exists at all to fill the gap above.
I also found a very close option, which is the phrasal verb "settle for", but it doesn't apply to the example above, because the author has neglected explaining it more because of its "simplicity", whereas "settle for" is used in cases that the person "has not been able" to reach that amount of quality.(E.g: The team settled for a bronze medal.)
