This term refers to act and the consequence of being wrong or wrong (take one decision wrong, consider something incorrectly, mislead).
Among the synonyms of error we run into error, error, failure, slip, equivocation, inaccuracy, gazapo, lack or inaccuracy. On the contrary, among its antonyms we encounter words such as accuracy or success.
