Hello Roopali, These adjectives are synonymous, but they are used differently. Vulnerable implies that you are in a precarious situation (taken advantage of), where as susceptible means that there is a probability that something will happen. I am susceptible to a particular disease (You would not say vulnerable in this situation). I am in a vulnerable situation. (you cannot be in a susceptible situation). I hope this helps. Wade.
