    Correct Answer
    A. Gentle reproof
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Gentle reproof." The word "admonition" refers to a gentle reproof or mild criticism given to someone in order to correct their behavior or actions.

    Correct Answer
    B. Unnecessary activity or ceremony
    Explanation
    The word "ado" refers to unnecessary activity or ceremony. This means that it signifies actions or rituals that are not essential or important. It implies that something is being done without any real purpose or need. The other options, gentle reproof and profound devotion, do not align with the definition of "ado" as they refer to different concepts altogether.

    C. Profound devotion
