    Correct Answer
    B. FIRM, STRONG
    Explanation
    The given answer "FIRM, STRONG" is correct because the word "FIRM" is repeated in the first line, indicating that it is related to the word "TO BUILD". Similarly, the word "FIRM" is also related to the word "TOUCH" and "SMELL" in the subsequent lines. Additionally, the word "STRONG" can be associated with both "TOUCH" and "SMELL", as they require a strong sense or ability. Therefore, "FIRM, STRONG" is the appropriate answer that connects all the given words.

"SINGING" is formed by adding the suffix "-ING" to "LING," "SPEAKING" is formed by adding the suffix "-ING" and the prefix "S-" to "LING," and "LINGING" is formed by adding the suffix "-ING" to "LING." "LANGUAGE" and "TONGUE" are also related to "LING" as they both refer to forms of communication.

Additionally, the word "POUND" is a homophone of "PUT" which further supports the idea of placing or putting something. Therefore, the common theme among all the words in the given list is the action of placing or putting something in a particular location.

    • B.

      OLD

    • C.

      YOUNG

    • D.

      OFFSPRING

    Correct Answer
    D. OFFSPRING
    Explanation
    The given words "PROL," "BEFORE," "OLD," "YOUNG" can be arranged in a logical sequence. "PROL" refers to the process of reproduction or the ability to produce offspring. "BEFORE" indicates a chronological order, suggesting that something comes after it. "OLD" and "YOUNG" represent stages in the life cycle, with "OLD" coming before "YOUNG." Therefore, the next logical word in the sequence would be "OFFSPRING," as it follows the pattern of reproduction and the progression from old to young.

    • D.

      TO PUT

    Correct Answer
    B. TO PLEASE, APPEASE
    Explanation
    The given answer "TO PLEASE, APPEASE" is the correct answer because the word "PLAC" can be seen as a root word, and when combined with the prefix "TO" it forms the word "TO PLEASE" which means to make someone happy or satisfied. It can also be combined with the prefix "AP" to form the word "APPEASE" which means to pacify or satisfy someone's demands. Therefore, both options accurately represent the meaning of "PLAC".

    Explanation
    The word "SPIR" is the common root in all the given options. "TO BREATHE" is the correct answer because it is the only option that directly relates to the meaning of "SPIR," which means to breathe or to have breath. The other options, "TO RUN," "TO SPIRE," and "TO SEE," do not have a direct connection to the meaning of "SPIR."

      TO PUSH, THRUST

    • D.

      COMMON

    Correct Answer
    B. TO BUILD
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "TO BUILD" because the words "STRU" and "STRUCT" are both related to construction or building. The word "CARE" suggests that the action being described is intentional and deliberate. The words "TO PUSH" and "THRUST" do not have the same connotation of construction or building, while the word "COMMON" does not provide any clear indication of the action being described. Therefore, "TO BUILD" is the most logical and fitting choice based on the given words.

    Explanation
    The word "SANGUIN" is derived from the Latin word "sanguis" which means "blood". Therefore, the correct answer is "BLOOD". The other options "COLD", "LIKE THE SKY", and "FUNNY" do not have any direct connection or association with the word "SANGUIN".

    Correct Answer
    A. TO TOUCH
    Explanation
    The given words TANG, TING, and TACT have a common pattern where the letters "T" and "A" are fixed, and the last two letters are interchanged. Applying the same pattern to the word TAG, we get the word TO TOUCH. The other options, LANGUAGE, TO DO, and TO SEND, do not follow this pattern.
