problem

  

Definition

A perceived gap between the existing state and a desired state, or a deviation from a norm, standard, or status quo.

Although many problems turn out to have several solutions (the means to close the gap or correct the deviation), difficulties arise where such means are either not obvious or are not immediately available.
