    Correct Answer
    B. Concentrate
    Explanation
    The word "concentrate" is the correct answer because when someone is asked to "think hard about something," it implies that they need to focus and give their full attention to that particular thing. "Concentrate" means to direct one's thoughts or efforts towards a specific task or objective, which aligns perfectly with the given context. The other options, "peculiar" and "fancy," do not convey the same meaning and are not suitable replacements for the phrase "think hard about something."

The question states that it refers to "something formed by the mind" and "to make something look nice." The word "fancy" fits these criteria as it can mean an image or idea created in the mind, and it can also mean to adorn or decorate something to make it look more attractive. Therefore, "fancy" is the most suitable option among the given choices.

    Correct Answer
    A. Peculiar
    Explanation
    The word "peculiar" is the correct answer because it means something that is strange or unusual, and it is being contrasted with the word "normal" in the question. The other options, "sorrow" and "concentrate," do not have the same meaning as "peculiar" and are not opposites of "normal." Therefore, "peculiar" is the best choice for a word that is different from the normal.

    • C.

      Convince

    Correct Answer
    C. Convince
    Explanation
    To persuade or convince someone means to use reasoning, evidence, or persuasive techniques to change their beliefs or opinions. It involves presenting a strong and compelling argument to bring the discussion or disagreement to a resolution. This could involve presenting facts, logical reasoning, or emotional appeals to convince the other person of your viewpoint and ultimately end the argument.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Admitting to an error; sorry

    • A.

      Peculiar

    • B.

      Apologize

    • C.

      Convince

    Correct Answer
    B. Apologize
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "apologize" because admitting to an error and saying sorry are both actions that demonstrate remorse and taking responsibility for one's actions. "Peculiar" means strange or unusual, which is not related to admitting to an error or apologizing. "Convince" means to persuade someone, which is also unrelated to apologizing. Therefore, "apologize" is the most appropriate word choice in this context.
