Can you explain more about the phrase "at stake"? And does it stand for "dangerous"?
Good question! 'At stake' means the same as 'At risk', exposed to harm or danger, or 'At question', being considered. It's normally in a situation when there is something valuable and it might be lost. Ex: Hundreds of people are at stake if the government doesn't take action quickly. Ex: I can't quit my job, there's too much at stake.
