There are two questions on "pretty vs quite" as follows:
“Pretty” versus “quite” posted on Feb 6, 2013.
“quite” vs “pretty” posted on Jul 8, 2014.
I have just noticed that the question asked in 2013 (first question) was close-voted four times as duplicate of the question asked in 2014 (second question). Shouldn't the second question (asked in 2014) be closed as a duplicate?
I think both of them have excellent answers. What is the reason to close the first question instead of the second question? Is there any guideline on this issue?
