Usage of the words elicit and exert


I have trouble using those words which are elicit and exert. 

Can someone give me a clearly explaination about the usage of them?

The dictionary does a pretty fine job of explaining what words mean. In this case, one means to bring forth & the other means to put forth. Bring and put are opposite actions.
