Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Choose the correct word to fill in the blank.The classroom is the teacher's ________________.

    • A.

      Domestic

    • B.

      Domain

    • C.

      Domicile

    Correct Answer
    B. Domain
    Explanation
    The word "domain" is the correct answer because it refers to an area or territory that belongs to someone, in this case, the teacher. It suggests that the classroom is the teacher's designated space or sphere of influence where they have authority and control. The words "domestic" and "domicile" are not suitable in this context as they refer to one's home or place of residence, which does not accurately describe the relationship between a teacher and a classroom.

    Animals tend to mark their territory, or _______________.

    • A.

      Domicile

    • B.

      Domestic

    • C.

      Domain

    Correct Answer
    C. Domain
    Explanation
    Animals tend to mark their territory, or domain. This means that they establish and defend a specific area that they consider to be their own. By marking their domain, animals communicate to others that they have claimed that particular space and that it is off-limits. This behavior helps them establish their dominance and protect their resources, such as food, shelter, and potential mates.

    • C.

      Domination

    Correct Answer
    B. Domestic
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "domestic" because the sentence suggests that while many horses are domesticated, there are still wild herds roaming the Midwest. This implies that domesticated horses are the majority, while wild herds are the exception.

    The Constitution creates limits that prevent the President from achieving ________________ over the citizens of the country.

    • A.

      Domination

    • B.

      Domicile

    • C.

      Predominant

    Correct Answer
    A. Domination
    Explanation
    The Constitution creates limits that prevent the President from achieving domination over the citizens of the country. This means that the President is not allowed to have complete control or authority over the people. The Constitution establishes a system of checks and balances to ensure that the President's power is limited and that the rights and freedoms of the citizens are protected. This prevents any one person, including the President, from having too much power and control over the country and its people.

    • A.

      Predominant

    • B.

      Domination

    • C.

      Domicile

    Correct Answer
    C. Domicile
    Explanation
    The word "domicile" refers to a place where someone lives or resides. In this context, the sentence suggests that people cannot live in the same place because they do not get along. This implies that their inability to coexist peacefully leads to the need for separate domiciles. Therefore, "domicile" is the correct answer as it best fits the given context and conveys the intended meaning.

      Influential

    • B.

      Superior

    • C.

      Dominant

    • D.

      Weakness

    Correct Answer
    D. Weakness
    Explanation
    The word "predominant" means having control, influence, or power over others. Out of the given options, "weakness" does not share the same meaning as "predominant." While the other options - influential, superior, and dominant - all imply a sense of control or power, weakness suggests the opposite, indicating a lack of strength or control. Therefore, "weakness" is not a synonym of "predominant."

      Anthropogenic

    • C.

      Decisive

    Correct Answer
    B. Anthropogenic
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "anthropogenic" because it means caused or produced by humans. In the given sentence, "Clearing the forests proved to be an anthropogenic disaster" implies that the disaster was caused by human activities such as deforestation. This word accurately describes the situation where human actions had a negative impact on the environment.

    • C.

      Perturbed

    Correct Answer
    C. Perturbed
    Explanation
