to shoot for 6 reps. mean?
A: Sometimes people will use a "spotter" when bench pressing at the gym. A spotter is someone who is there to help the person doing the exercise, if needed.

Q: What is the difference between spot and note and remark ?
A: I assume by spot you mean “spotted”? As in noticing something.
E.g: “I spotted something”

Note is similar to spotted. “I noticed something over there.” Or it could be taking notes. Which would mean writing points. Eg: “I took note of the teachers lecture.” Or note as in musical note. Depends on context, really.

Remark means making a comment after someone. E.g:
“Are you free today?”
“Sure” he remarked

Or it could be to refer to mentioning something. “There’s something strange about this object” he remarked.
Q: What is the difference between spot and see ?
A: With spot there is some difficulty added to it. It's harder to spot something than it is to see something.

For example:

1. "I saw the advertisement on the billboard."
2. "I spotted my mother in the crowded supermarket."

In example 1 it is very easy to see the advertisement. The person didn't have to search for it. In example 2, because the supermarket was crowded it was hard for them to see their mother.

It's a subtle nuance between the two but if you're ever in doubt just use "see". Because "see" can be used for anything, but "spot" sometimes sounds unnatural.

For example:

3. "I spotted the advertisement on the billboard."
4. "I saw my mother in the crowded supermarket."

Example 3 seems unnatural but example 4 is fine.
