Poeni comes from Latin poena ("penalty; punishment"), which was borrowed from Greek poinē ("penalty, fine, bloodmoney") and is the source of English pain and pine ("painful longing").

What kind of "worry" is this? Is it to be anxious and to fret over things or to annoy and be disturbing.

To be anxious/worried.

what is the difference between ' Do i have to worry? ' and ' Do I need to worry ' I used the first one and was marked wrong. Why?

Both are in the list of accepted answers here. Also 'Must I ...?'.

Why is "should I worry" not accepted? It means the same thing.

This shouldn't be used for 'need to' 'oes eisiau i fi' is do i need to.

Isn't it 'Oes angen i fi?'

'Should I worry?' wasn't accepted.
