.
A situation is far too general-- every time that you look in front of you, you are viewing a situation. 'Situation' nowadays has a slang meaning (a complex or critical or unusual difficulty), and for which meaning it usually appears in quotation marks, since that meaning is still standardly expressed by supplying an adjective ('an unusual situation', a 'dangerous situation', etc),

Since this sentence neither seems slangy nor supplies an adjective before the noun, 'situation' does not work well.
