      Very small

    • B.

      Hardly noticed

    • C.

      Expensive

    • D.

      Hanging loose

    Correct Answer
    D. Hanging loose

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Ancient slaves or prisoners are usually kept in a dungeon.

    • A.

      A fenced camp

    • B.

      An underground cell

    • C.

      An outdoor prison

    • D.

      An animal cage

    Correct Answer
    B. An underground cell
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "an underground cell". This is because a dungeon typically refers to a dark, underground room or cell where ancient slaves or prisoners were kept. It is often associated with a gloomy, oppressive atmosphere and is commonly depicted in historical literature and movies. The term "fenced camp" does not accurately describe a dungeon, as it suggests a more open and less confining space. "An outdoor prison" also does not fit the description of a dungeon, as it implies a prison that is located outside rather than underground. Similarly, "an animal cage" does not capture the essence of a dungeon, as it specifically refers to a structure used for confining animals rather than humans.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The denouement of the story made the readers raise their eyebrows.

    • A.

      Title

    • B.

      Introduction

    • C.

      Conflict

    • D.

      Resolution

    Correct Answer
    D. Resolution
    Explanation
    The denouement of a story refers to the resolution or the final outcome of the plot. It is the point where all the conflicts and tensions in the story are resolved, and loose ends are tied up. In this case, the fact that the denouement made the readers raise their eyebrows suggests that the resolution of the story was unexpected or surprising in some way.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The peaceful demonstration ended in a debacle.

    • A.

      Heated argument

    • B.

      Noisy debate

    • C.

      General dispersion

    • D.

      Bloody encounter

    Correct Answer
    C. General dispersion
    Explanation
    The phrase "ended in a debacle" suggests that the peaceful demonstration did not go as planned and resulted in a negative outcome. "General dispersion" aligns with this idea as it implies that the participants of the demonstration dispersed or scattered in different directions, indicating a lack of unity and organization. This is a more fitting description compared to the other options such as "heated argument," "noisy debate," or "bloody encounter," which imply a different level of conflict or disagreement.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Dunes are rarely seen on meadows and prairies.

    • A.

      Dried grass

    • B.

      Sand hills

    • C.

      Fallen twigs or branches

    • D.

      Exotic birds

    Correct Answer
    B. Sand hills
    Explanation
    Dunes are rarely seen on meadows and prairies because dunes are typically formed by the accumulation of sand, which requires specific conditions such as wind and a lack of vegetation to allow the sand to pile up. Meadows and prairies, on the other hand, are characterized by grassy vegetation and do not typically have the necessary conditions for dune formation. Therefore, sand hills are a more likely feature to be found in areas where dunes can form.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The drapery of this hotel is of such elegance and beauty.

    • A.

      Long curtains

    • B.

      Facade

    • C.

      Tables and chairs

    • D.

      Interior design

    Correct Answer
    A. Long curtains
    Explanation
    The given statement suggests that the drapery of the hotel is elegant and beautiful. The term "drapery" refers to the curtains or window coverings in this context. Therefore, the correct answer, "long curtains," aligns with the statement as it implies that the elegance and beauty of the hotel's drapery are attributed to its long curtains.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Demure women usually earn the respect of men.

    • A.

      Sophisticated

    • B.

      Shy and modest

    • C.

      Liberated

    • D.

      Open-minded

    Correct Answer
    B. Shy and modest
    Explanation
    Shy and modest women are often seen as demure, which can lead to earning respect from men. This is because their behavior is perceived as humble and respectful, which can be attractive to men. Additionally, their reserved nature may make them appear more mysterious and intriguing, further enhancing their respectability.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    That building at the corner is dilapidated.

    • A.

      Damaged

    • B.

      Neglected

    • C.

      Partially ruined

    • D.

      Newly-painted

    Correct Answer
    C. Partially ruined
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "partially ruined" because the word "dilapidated" means in a state of disrepair or partial ruin. It suggests that the building is not completely destroyed but is in a deteriorated condition. The other options, such as "damaged," "neglected," and "newly-painted," do not accurately convey the meaning of "dilapidated."
