feasibility

feasibility
feasible ADJECTIVE 1) possible and practical to achieve easily or conveniently. 2) informal likely.
DERIVATIVES feasibility noun feasibly adverb.
USAGE In formal contexts, the use of feasible to mean ‘likely’ or ‘probable’ should be avoided. This sense, although it has been in use since the 17th century, is regarded as incorrect because it does not relate to the French and Latin origins of the word.
ORIGIN Old French faisible, from Latin facere 'do, make' .
