    • E.

      Though

    Correct Answer
    B. As
    Explanation
    The word "As" is the best linker to connect these two sentences because it indicates a cause-and-effect relationship between them. The first sentence states the reason for Britain's declaration of war, and the second sentence explains that Britain had guaranteed Belgian neutrality. Using "As" implies that the German invasion of Belgium is the cause or reason for Britain's guarantee of Belgian neutrality.

      Despite the fact that

    Correct Answer
    D. Despite the fact that
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Despite the fact that." This linker is appropriate in this context because it introduces a contrasting clause that acknowledges the absence of a formal alliance between the British government and France, but still emphasizes the sense of obligation to go to war on France’s behalf.

  • 3. 

    Choose a synonym for the linker underlined in the sentence below. The 1904 Anglo-French entente was gradually extended to protect each other’s interests; hence Britain took sides with France against Germany in 1906.

    • B.

      While

    • C.

      Because

    • D.

      Also

    Correct Answer
    A. Thus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Thus". This is because "thus" is a synonym for "hence" which is used in the sentence to show cause and effect. It indicates that the extension of the Anglo-French entente led to Britain taking sides with France against Germany.

    Which linker can best connect the two sentences below? Britain’s first experience of total war inevitably meant the extension of government powers. This was a gradual process, and not immediate as in the Second World War.

    • A.

      So

    • B.

      Therefore

    • C.

      However

      Moreover

    Correct Answer
    C. However
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "However". This linker is appropriate because it introduces a contrast or contradiction between the two sentences. The first sentence suggests that Britain's first experience of total war led to the extension of government powers, implying a direct and immediate connection. However, the second sentence contradicts this by stating that the process was gradual and not immediate, indicating a different outcome than what might be expected.

    Explanation
    The linker underlined in the sentences is used to introduce a consequence. The sentence states that the impact of the First World War was complex and contradictory, and as a consequence, it is essential to allow for a variety of interpretations. The linker connects the cause (the impact of the war) with the effect (the need for different interpretations), indicating a cause and effect relationship.

"Dictatorship" is a suitable synonym for "tyranny" as it also implies an autocratic rule where power is concentrated in the hands of a single ruler, who exercises control without any legal constraints or democratic processes.
