complete, end or finish?


All these words mean the same, but generally you use ‘finish’ for things that you do regularly, such as eating a meal or going to work.
I finish work at five.

‘Complete’ is used to mean to make whole.
The jigsaw puzzle is complete.

And ‘complete’ is also used to say that you have finished making or doing something that you are not going to do very often.

You tend to use ‘end’ for finality.
