    差異不大、細微的差異是:

    Sufficient 指對某項需要恰能滿足 如 sufficient savings.(足夠的存款)

    Enough 比較沒有像sufficient 那麼精準、是一個比較概略的詞。例如:

    Do you have enough food? 你食物夠嗎?

    Adequate 暗指勉強符合某項需求。例如 The service was adequate. 服務是恰如其份。(沒有特別更好)

    原文

    sufficient suggests a close meeting of a need <sufficient savings>.

    enough is less exact in suggestion than sufficient <do you have enough food?>. adequate may imply barely meeting a requirement <the service was adequate>
