I have two questions:
- When considering gains and losses, advantages and disadvantages, pros and cons, etc., what is a good word for the traits which are equal between the two options. "Equalities", "draws", "ties", etc. all seem a little out of place (especially stylistically and word-length-wise). Moreover, "draw" feels too similar to "drawback".
- What is the opposite of "benefit" (which matches stylistically)? "Disadvantage" does not work because that opposes "advantage", "con" does not work because that opposes "pro", etc. "Drawback" is as good as I can presently get, but I am not satisfied with it.
