I have looked up the words "sign" and "signal" but I can't decide which
one is correct to use in the following sentence!
- The result of the election is a clear (sign - signal) that voters are unhappy.
Thank you.

Hello, Ahmed Imam Attia—The better word to use there is "sign": "The result of the election is a clear sign that voters are unhappy." The word "signal" would work nicely, however, if the sentence were rephrased: "The result of the election signals that voters are unhappy." I omitted "clearly" there; it could be placed in a few different places: before "signals," before "that," or after "are."
