Can you please explain the differences between these three words?
Because I always misuse them when I am writing English.
I have read a few sentences:
The merits of the new health program are gradually being recognized.

The main advantage of using word processors is the amount of time you save.
So time-saving is something that puts word processors in a better position than other machines? Can't I use benefit instead?
