If "CON" is the opposite of "PRO", what is the oposite of PROGRESS?
(This answer is too short. Please make it longer.)
Pros and cons are arguments "for" and "against" a particular issue. The origin of the expression is associated with the latin term "pro et contra" ("pro" meaning "for" and "contra" meaning "against"). So, the expression "pro" isn't related to "progress" here. Therefore, "con" isn't the root of the opposite word of "progress."
Otherwise, progress has many antonyms such as decline, retreat, retrogression, etc.
you obviouly did not get this was a joke. But thank you for yhe english lesson. It reassured me that things did not change since the second grade.
The answer to the joke was Congress in case you cannot figure it out.
Hmm..... Give me some time to think about this one.
Yes, I'm almost there......
