    • A.

      Playwright

    • B.

      Poem

    • C.

      Architect

    • D.

      Musician

    Correct Answer
    B. Poem
    Explanation
    A poem is not an artist because it is a form of literary expression, typically written by a poet. While poets can be considered artists, the actual poem itself is a creative work rather than an artist in its own right. In contrast, a playwright is an artist who writes plays, an architect is an artist who designs buildings, and a musician is an artist who creates and performs music.

      High-quality

    Correct Answer
    C. High-quality
    Explanation
    "Authentic" does not mean "high-quality" because "authentic" refers to something that is genuine, real, or original, while "high-quality" refers to something that is of superior quality or excellence. While something that is authentic may indeed be of high quality, the two terms are not synonymous. Authenticity does not necessarily imply a specific level of quality.

    Explanation
    An article written about a book, film, etc is called a "review". A review provides an evaluation or assessment of the work, discussing its strengths, weaknesses, and overall quality. It often includes the reviewer's opinions and recommendations, helping readers decide whether or not to engage with the book, film, or other media. A review differs from criticism, which typically focuses on analyzing and interpreting the work, and from a preview, which provides a glimpse or preview of what to expect from the work. A critic is someone who writes reviews or engages in the practice of criticism.
