Q: В чем разница между risky и dangerous ?
A: "Dangerous" is a more negative word. First of all, the consequences of danger can be more severe if things go wrong. If something is dangerous, it means you might come to serious harm. Secondly, the implication is that there are no benefits to it at all.
"Risky" can be used in situations where you may actually benefit. You take a risk, and you either suffer a loss or you gain something. So a positive outcome is possible. It is also a bit more lighthearted, the severity of the loss if things go wrong doesn't feel as extreme as with "danger".
