This term has a couple of meanings. First, just like you deposit money in the bank, you can posit — i.e., set or fix — something in place. Posit can also mean to assume the existence of or suggest an explanation for something, and that is the definition used in the example. P.S. If you look at this word really fast, sometimes it reads as “Post-It.” Or is that just me”
Example: Considering the lack of corporate projects coming into the firm, Amira posits that her team will be the next one receiving pink slips.
