@perennialloner,

yes.

alternately, you could say --

"The woman couldn't differentiate Republicans from Democrats."

I would say so, yeah. Or you might say "The woman couldn't differentiate Republicans from Democrats."

Yeah, what he said, right before me.

Personally I would choose "distinguish" over "differentiate" in that sentence.

@Region Philbis,
Oops I made a mistake. That's not what I meant to ask.

I just wanted to give I guess a legitimate sentence and didnt realize it was wrong.

The woman couldn't differentiate (between) them. Maybe the answer is the same though?
