    B. Imminent
    Explanation
    Imminent means something that is likely to happen very soon or is about to occur. It suggests that an event or situation is impending and could happen at any moment. In this context, the word "imminent" fits perfectly with the given description of happening quickly and very soon.

    The word "fiasco" means a total failure or a complete mess. It is the best fit among the given options because it accurately describes a situation that has gone completely wrong or has been a disaster. "Imperious" means arrogant or domineering, "jeopardize" means to put something at risk or in danger, and "credulous" means gullible or easily fooled.

    C. Indolence
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "indolence" because it is a noun that means laziness or reluctance to work or make an effort. It is synonymous with laziness, which is mentioned in the question. The other options do not have the same meaning as laziness. "Oblivious" means unaware or not conscious of something. "Imminent" means about to happen.

    Correct Answer
    B. Cynical
    Explanation
    The word "cynical" best fits the description of someone who is distrustful and looks down on why people do the things they do. A cynical person tends to have a negative and distrustful outlook on life, often assuming the worst of people's motivations and actions. They may be skeptical and critical, believing that people are primarily driven by self-interest or ulterior motives. This aligns with the given description and distinguishes it from the other options.

    Correct Answer
    A. Audible
    Explanation
    The word "audible" means something that is able to be heard. It is used to describe sounds or noises that are loud or clear enough to be perceived by the ears. In this context, "audible" is the correct answer because it is the only word that relates to the sense of hearing. "Imperious" means domineering or overbearing, "unwitting" means unaware or unintentional, and "jeopardize" means to put something or someone at risk.

    • C.

      Indolence

    • D.

      Ominous

    Correct Answer
    D. Ominous
    Explanation
    The word "ominous" means giving the impression that something bad or unpleasant is going to happen. It suggests a sense of foreboding or danger. Out of the given options, "threatening" and "imperious" also convey a sense of potential harm or dominance, but "ominous" specifically implies a feeling of impending doom or negativity. "Nimble" and "indolence," on the other hand, have completely different meanings and do not relate to a sense of threat or danger. Therefore, "ominous" is the most suitable word in this context.

    Correct Answer
    B. Cotillion
    Explanation
    A cotillion is a formal dance, often associated with a prom or ball. The other options, oblivious, ominious, and jeopardize, do not have any direct connection to fancy dances. Therefore, cotillion is the most appropriate answer as it aligns with the given context.

    Explanation
    The word "oblivious" means to be unaware or clueless about something. It implies that the person is not paying attention or is completely ignorant of a situation or information. In this context, "unaware of" and "clueless" are synonymous with "oblivious." Therefore, the correct answer is "oblivious."

    A. Imperious
    Explanation
    Imperious means having or showing arrogant superiority and a dominating attitude. It suggests someone who is authoritative, commanding, and expects unquestioning obedience. The word "overbearing" in the question further supports this meaning. The other options, oblivious, credulous, and vivacious, do not convey the same sense of dominance and control as imperious does. Therefore, imperious is the correct answer.
