    • C.

      Hatred

    • D.

      Cruelty

    Correct Answer
    A. Special attraction
    Explanation
    Affinity refers to a special attraction or a strong liking towards something or someone. It implies a natural connection or bond that exists between two entities. This can be seen in relationships, hobbies, or interests where individuals feel a strong affinity towards certain things. Faithfulness, hatred, and cruelty do not convey the same meaning as affinity and are therefore not the correct answer in this context.

      Special attraction

    • B.

      Faithfulness

    • C.

      Hatred

    • D.

      Support

    Correct Answer
    B. Faithfulness
    Explanation
    Faithfulness is the correct answer because fidelity is a noun that means being loyal, devoted, and true to someone or something. It implies a sense of trustworthiness and reliability. Special attraction, hatred, and support do not accurately capture the meaning of fidelity.

    • B.

      Support

    • C.

      Faithfulness

    • D.

      Loyalty

    Correct Answer
    B. Support
    Explanation
    The word "patronage" refers to the support or sponsorship given by a patron. In this context, "support" is the best fit as it aligns with the meaning of patronage. The other options, such as cruelty, faithfulness, and loyalty, do not accurately convey the concept of patronage.

    • B.

      Loyalty

    • C.

    • D.

      Hatred

    Correct Answer
    D. Hatred
    Explanation
    The word "malice" refers to a strong feeling of hatred or ill-will towards someone. It implies a desire to harm or cause trouble to others. Therefore, out of the given options, "hatred" is the most appropriate word that closely relates to the meaning of "malice".

    • D.

      Aid

    Correct Answer
    A. Liveliness
    Explanation
    The word "vivacity" refers to the quality of being lively and full of energy. It is synonymous with "liveliness," which means having a vibrant and animated nature. "Faithfulness" and "cruelty" are unrelated to the meaning of vivacity. "Aid" refers to assistance or support, which is not the same as liveliness. Therefore, the correct answer is "liveliness."

    Rate this question:

    • A.

    • B.

    • D.

      Cruelty

    Correct Answer
    C. Incredulously
    Explanation
    The word "incredulously" means to have disbelief or skepticism towards something. It implies a sense of doubt or disbelief. Out of the given options, "incredulously" is the only word that matches this definition. "Disbelievingly" and "atrociously" refer to different concepts, while "hatred" and "cruelty" do not convey the same sense of skepticism or doubt. Therefore, "incredulously" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      Affinity for learning

    • C.

      Claiming distinction of merit

    • D.

      Desolation of culture

    Correct Answer
    C. Claiming distinction of merit
    Explanation
    The word "pretentious" means to claim distinction of merit. It refers to someone who pretends to be more important or talented than they actually are. This person may exaggerate their achievements or abilities in order to appear superior. Therefore, "claiming distinction of merit" is the correct answer that best matches the meaning of "pretentious".

    Rate this question:

      Feeling of desolation

    • B.

    • D.

      Feeling of kinship

    Correct Answer
    D. Feeling of kinship
    Explanation
    The word "affinity" refers to a strong connection or similarity between two or more things. In this context, the correct answer "feeling of kinship" aligns with the definition of affinity as it implies a sense of closeness or connection with others. The other options, such as "feeling of desolation," "feeling of isolation," and "feeling of loneliness," do not convey the idea of a strong bond or connection, which is the essence of affinity.

    A. Thoughtful
    Explanation
    The word "pensive" means to be deep in thought or to be reflective. This is synonymous with the word "thoughtful," which also means to be engaged in deep thinking or to consider something carefully. The other options - "boorish," "hatred," and "loyalty" - do not have the same meaning as "pensive."

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Blue Veins

    • A.

      Society formed to exclude others of non African American descent

    • B.

      Society formed for African Americans of character and culture

    • C.

      Society of slave born people

    • D.

      Society of strictly free born people of all races

    Correct Answer
    B. Society formed for African Americans of character and culture
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Society formed for African Americans of character and culture." This is because the term "Blue Veins" refers to a society that was specifically created for African Americans who were considered to be of a lighter complexion, with veins that appeared blue under the skin. This society aimed to exclude individuals who were not of African American descent but instead focused on promoting the values of character and culture within the African American community.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    The Blue Veins are viewed as being prejudiced by African American outsiders.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that African American outsiders perceive the Blue Veins as prejudiced. This implies that the Blue Veins may have discriminatory attitudes or behaviors towards African Americans. The word "viewed" indicates that this perception is based on the perspective of African American outsiders, suggesting that it may not be a universally held belief. Therefore, the answer is true, indicating that the Blue Veins are seen as prejudiced by African American outsiders.

    Rate this question:

  • 12.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement says that Mr. Ryder tells Liza Jane immediately that he knows about her husband. However, the correct answer is false because the statement does not provide any information about whether Mr. Ryder actually knows about her husband or not. It only states that he tells her immediately, but it does not confirm the content of what he tells her. Therefore, we cannot determine if Mr. Ryder knows about her husband based on the given statement.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because there is no mention of Mr. Ryder meeting Mrs. Dixon and Liza Jane through the Blue Vein Society. The question only states that Mrs. Dixon and Liza Jane are women who Mr. Ryder met through the Blue Vein Society, but it does not provide any information about how they met. Therefore, we cannot determine if the statement is true or false based on the given information.

    Rate this question:

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Mr. Ryder introducing a person who is very important to him at the ball he hosts in his home implies that the person holds significance in his life and he wants to publicly acknowledge their importance. This suggests that the statement is true.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given answer is true because the explanation states that Liza Jane's speech is not standard English and the author intentionally wrote her speech in dialect. This implies that the pattern of her speech deviates from the norms of standard English and is deliberately written in a non-standard form, which supports the statement that her speech is not standard English. Therefore, the answer is true.

    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Blue Vein Society was not formed in a small northern city by Mr. Ryder. The given information does not provide any details about the formation of the Blue Vein Society, so we cannot determine where or by whom it was formed. Therefore, the answer is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The story, "The Wife of His Youth," does not imply that Mr. Ryder is attracted to Mrs. Dixon because he admires the work she does for poor African American children. In fact, Mr. Ryder is initially attracted to Mrs. Dixon because of her beauty and charm, and only later discovers her dedication to helping others. The story focuses more on the themes of race, identity, and the conflict between personal desires and societal expectations.

    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. The reason is not mentioned in the question, but it can be inferred that Mr. Ryder hosting a ball to publicly resign his membership in the Blue Vein Society does not make logical sense.
