"Adequate" means to be sufficient, enough in quantity, or good enough in quality.
Is your salary adequate to support your family.


Usually, the words "adequate", "sufficient", or "enough" are used interchangeably, but still there is a little difference in the use of them. Adequate describes a condition of something meeting (maybe just barely) the minimum or exact requirement. If something is sufficient or enough, it may describe a condition of something meeting (maybe comfortably) the requirements.
