Hi,
I have two questions ,:)
1) Please tell me why I can' t use "inner" here
2) Would you like to tell me their antonyms of "inner" ,"internal" ?

Thanks a lot

Hi FangFang

1) I'd say it's simply a matter of knowing usage and collocations.
2) The most typical antonyms:
inner - outer
internal - external (also: "outside", particularly in business)

Maybe Mr. Mic will have some additional input for you. :D

No, Yankee covered it nicely. Internal accounting, internal auditing, external auditing-- these are collocations/phrases used in the financial field.
