Have you ever “been in a quandary”? Probably.
To be “in a quandary” (estar en un dilema) is to be in a difficult situation (apuro) or “to have a dilemma”. Look at these examples:
- Mr. Sánchez is in a quandary about the riots in Barcelona. This means he has a dilemma about what to do.
- The situation in Barcelona has put Mr. Sánchez in a quandary.
- Who will get Mr. Sánchez “out of the quandary” (¿Quién sacará a Mr. Sanchez del apuro?)?
- The EU is in a quandary about Brexit. So is the British Labour Party.
