  • 1. 

    Independence, self-government

    • A.

      Autonomy

    • C.

      Bizarre

    Correct Answer
    A. Autonomy
    Explanation
    Autonomy refers to the ability or right to govern oneself or make decisions independently. It is closely related to independence and self-government. The other options, aversion and bizarre, do not have the same meaning as autonomy. Aversion means a strong dislike or repulsion towards something, while bizarre means strange or unusual. Therefore, the correct answer is autonomy because it aligns with the concept of independence and self-government.

    Correct Answer
    B. Aversion
    Explanation
    Aversion means a strong or fixed dislike or antipathy. It refers to a feeling of intense dislike or repugnance towards something or someone. This word accurately captures the meaning of "strong or fixed dislike" mentioned in the question. Autonomy means independence or self-governance, which is unrelated to the given definition. Belittle means to make someone or something seem unimportant or inferior, which is also unrelated. Therefore, aversion is the correct answer.

    Explanation
    Belittling refers to the act of making something or someone seem less important or significant. It involves diminishing the value or importance of a particular thing or person, often through derogatory or dismissive comments or actions. This can be done to undermine someone's achievements, ideas, or opinions, or to downplay the significance of a particular situation or event. Belittling can have negative effects on individuals, as it can erode their self-esteem and confidence. It is important to recognize and avoid belittling others in order to foster a positive and respectful environment.

    • B.

      Bizarre

    • C.

      Bequeath

    Correct Answer
    C. Bequeath
    Explanation
    The word "bequeath" means to leave money or property by a will, or to pass it along. This is the correct answer because it perfectly matches the definition given in the question. The other options, "blithe" and "bizarre," do not have any relation to leaving money or property by a will.

    Explanation
    The word "bizarre" refers to something that is strikingly odd in appearance or style, or grotesque. It is used to describe something that is unusual, strange, or out of the ordinary. This word is the most appropriate choice among the given options as it best captures the meaning of the description provided. "Blithe" means cheerful or carefree, which is the opposite of the given meaning. "Bequeath" means to leave or pass on something in a will, which is not related to the given meaning.

    Rate this question:

      Blithe

    • B.

      Bizarre

    • C.

      Bequeath

    Correct Answer
    A. Blithe
    Explanation
    The word "blithe" means happy and cheerful. It is often used to describe someone who is carefree and lighthearted. This word is a synonym for "gay" in the sense of being joyful and content. The other options, "bizarre" and "bequeath," do not have the same meaning as "blithe" and are therefore incorrect.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    High-surrounding; marked by use of language without much real meaning

    • A.

      Buffoon

    • B.

      Bombastic

    • C.

      Cache

    Correct Answer
    B. Bombastic
    Explanation
    Bombastic means using language that is overly inflated or exaggerated, lacking in substance or meaning. This explanation fits with the given definition of "marked by use of language without much real meaning." Bombastic language tends to be showy and grandiose, but lacks depth or sincerity. It is often used to impress or deceive others rather than convey genuine ideas or emotions.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    A clown; someone who amuses with tricks and jokes

    • A.

      Buffoon

    • B.

      Bombastic

    • C.

      Cache

    Correct Answer
    A. Buffoon
    Explanation
    A buffoon is someone who entertains others with tricks and jokes, similar to a clown. They are known for their comedic and often silly behavior, bringing laughter and amusement to those around them. The term "buffoon" is often used to describe someone who acts foolishly or in a comical manner, often for the purpose of entertainment. Therefore, the correct answer in this case is "buffoon".

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Hiding place; something hidden in a hiding place

    • A.

      Buffoon

    • B.

      Bombastic

    • C.

      Cache

    Correct Answer
    C. Cache
    Explanation
    A cache is a hiding place or a secret storage location where something can be hidden. It is often used to store valuable or important items that need to be kept safe or hidden from others. In this context, the word "cache" refers to something hidden in a hiding place, making it the correct answer. Both "buffoon" and "bombastic" do not relate to the concept of a hiding place or something hidden, so they are not the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Discord; harsh sound

    • A.

      Cache

    • B.

      Cacophony

    • C.

      Bizarre

    Correct Answer
    B. Cacophony
    Explanation
    The word "cacophony" means a harsh or discordant sound. This makes it the most appropriate choice to match the given description of "Discord; harsh sound." The other options, "cache" and "bizarre," do not convey the same meaning and are unrelated to the concept of harsh or discordant sounds. Therefore, "cacophony" is the correct answer.
