Synonyms of "Abnormal" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre abnormal e anomalous ?
A: abnormal (opposite of normal), means that it isn't what it is expected, or it doesnt match the other things with it. in some contexts, abnormal could also describe something that is wrong or broken, like in electronics, etc. Anomalous means that it is an odd one out, and therefore it shouldn't be used when making a decision, or identifying a trend.
