    Explanation
    The word "goad" means to provoke or urge someone into action. It can be used to describe the act of poking or prodding someone or something in order to motivate or stimulate a response. The other words listed, such as "singe," "drone," and "brood," do not have the same meaning or context as "goad," making them incorrect answers.

In the given list of words, "miscellaneous" is the only word that represents a category or collection of various things.

    The word "literate" means being able to read and write proficiently. In the given options, "literate" is the only word that signifies a person's ability to read and write. Being well-trained in an area, being unique, yearning, or being peevish does not necessarily imply literacy. Therefore, "literate" is the correct answer.

    Explanation
    The word "brood" means to dwell on or think deeply about something, typically in a negative or anxious way. It implies a sense of worry or overthinking. The other options, "singe," "yearn," and "verify" do not convey the same meaning of dwelling on something in one's mind. "Singe" means to burn or scorch, "yearn" means to have a strong desire or longing, and "verify" means to confirm or check the accuracy of something. Therefore, "brood" is the most appropriate option that aligns with the given phrase "to dwell on in one's mind."

    Explanation
    Downright means completely or thoroughly. It is used to emphasize the extreme nature of something, often in a negative sense. In this context, the word "downright" is the best fit as it conveys the idea of being absolute or complete. The other words in the list, such as "upright," "culminates," and "unique," do not carry the same connotation of being completely or thoroughly.

    Explanation
    The term "one of a kind" refers to something that is unique and unlike anything else. In this context, the word "unique" is the correct answer as it directly relates to the meaning of "one of a kind." The other options, such as "drone," "goad," and "animated," do not convey the same idea of being one-of-a-kind or unique. Therefore, "unique" is the most appropriate answer.

It involves conducting a thorough examination or investigation to ensure the authenticity or correctness of something. Therefore, choosing "verify" as the correct answer aligns with the given phrase "to make sure it is true." The other options, "culminate," "literate," and "indulge," do not directly relate to the concept of confirming or proving the truth of something.

    Correct Answer
    C. Seethe
    Explanation
    Seethe is the correct answer because it means to boil inside with rage. When someone is seething, they are experiencing intense anger or frustration that is simmering within them.

      Looming

    Correct Answer
    B. Animated
    Explanation
    The word "animated" means lively and full of energy. It is a suitable synonym for "lively" as it conveys the same meaning. "Culminated" means reached the highest point or climax, "brooding" means showing deep unhappiness or thoughtfulness, and "looming" means appearing large and threatening. These words do not have the same meaning as "lively," so they are not the correct answer.

    Explanation
    Oration refers to a formal spoken presentation or speech. It is a type of public speaking where someone delivers a well-structured and persuasive speech to an audience. The other options, such as yearning, droning, and looming, do not have the same meaning as oration and are unrelated to formal spoken presentations.
