- “Suffering” would imply a physical rather than emotional torment

- “Anguish” intensifies the severity of their suffering more so than “suffering.”

-“Anguish” implies a more manageable pain.

Hello again, Kacim Allow me two comments, please: 1. In my earlier response to your question regarding "anger" and "rage" I had shown you, how you can easily find answers to this kind of question. The same applies here as well. You must at least try to begin to work more independently. If you get stuck, then you can still turn to this forum for help. We are not doing you a favor by supplying ready made answers. 2. You forgot to post the context (the passage). The correct answer depends entirely on that context.
