Can I use "perfect" instead of "exhaustive" here?
"Exhaustive" is more similar in meaning to "comprehensive" or "complete," referring to the inclusion of all necessary elements or variables. "Perfect" is more often used to refer to the quality of something, so it is not entirely appropriate to use in this context. Ex: This is a complete list of all eligible voters in the district. Ex: I have made an exhaustive list of all potential partners we can contact.
