core
Exercise 1 - Understanding meaning
Core means the central or most important part of something.

For example:

Even though we don't eat the core of an apple, this is a very important part of the fruit: It is the center which contains the seeds for new apples.

We must understand the core issues before we begin to deal with the less important details.
