The risk is lower on a new Toyota Camry. So, risk ranges from low (the new Camry) to high (the poorly maintained high mileage car).

Discussion is less than a page (278 words) and explains risk and gives examples of how a forensic auditor is an expert in risk, all without using any technical words or jargon. Your grandmother would understand this.
