Consider the scenario where a tutor is charging a student $100 for solving an assignment.
So the tutor takes $50 as a token before starting and rest $50 when it’s done.
A way to communicate this to the student is:
- You can transfer a token of $50 to me.
- I take token amount of $50 for this.
What are the alternatives ways of communicating the same? I looked at the synonyms for token but couldn’t find an appropriate word. Also, is the above use of word token correct or appropriate?
