What's the difference between definition 3 and 5?

They're completely different. 3 can more or less be swapped with group and the other with eh... destiny, fate, place in life or something like that.
What I want know is, which one of these, if any, refer to the lots in an auction house. Regards, Mannafredo 21:42, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
3 and 5 (9 possibly) are instances of the second sense (separate portion) in fields where lot has become the preferred term.
Auction house sense is 3, not very distinct from 2. DCDuring TALK 10:30, 16 June 2008 (UTC)

"the lot"[edit]

Should there be a mention of "the lot" (everything)? "He ate the lot." 81.152.72.174 22:58, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
