You may not be able to do that, as IOS prevents you setting the enable and secret the same. As the simulations do not always have all IOS features implemented, it might allow you.

The simulators do not always have all the commands. With my BCMSN, I was not sure the best way to do something. I had the choice of two options, but one command was not implemented, making it quite clear what Cisco wanted.

IOS does allow you to set both to be the same. It just warns that you shouldn't. If both are set, enable secret takes precedence.

I'd understand it as simply the enable password for privileged mode. I'd just focus on what their asking you, if you look too deeply at possible meanings, instead of whats said, you may get off track with the exam sim.

Good luck
