# If you claim something is futile, what are you suggesting?

Mar 30, 2018

You are suggesting that it is pointless.

#### Explanation:

Futile means "incapable of producing any useful result; pointless".
$\rightarrow$ Synonyms are: vain, useless, ineffectual, to no effect

I would use futile like this:

• Brushing your teeth and then eating sugary food is futile.
• The boy tried to move the log, but his efforts were futile.
• It is futile to exercise without eating healthy.
