    Explanation
    The correct answer is "across". "Across" means from one side to the other side of something, often implying movement or traversal. It suggests going over or through an obstacle or barrier. In the context of the given options, "across" is the most suitable word to describe the movement or position of something from one side to the other.

      Both ends or all sides

    • D.

      Water

    Correct Answer
    D. Water
    Explanation
    The given answer "water" is the correct one because the root words "hydro" and "hydr" both refer to water. The other options, "under," "warn," and "both ends or all sides," do not have any relation to water. Therefore, "water" is the most appropriate answer based on the given root words.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    Aqua, aque

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

    • C.

      Year

    • D.

      Under

    Correct Answer
    A. Water
    Explanation
    The given words "aqua" and "aque" both refer to water. The other options, "warn," "year," and "under," do not have any relation to water. Therefore, the correct answer is "water."

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Ann, enni

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

      Across

    • C.

      Year

    • D.

      Warn

    Correct Answer
    C. Year
    Explanation
    The given words "ann" and "enni" do not have any clear meaning or connection to the word "year". Therefore, it can be inferred that the correct answer "year" is unrelated to the given words and is likely a random selection. Without further context or information, it is difficult to determine the exact reason for this answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Poly

    • A.

      Across

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Many, several

    • D.

      Both ends or all sides

    Correct Answer
    C. Many, several
    Explanation
    The word "poly" is a prefix that means "many" or "several." This prefix is commonly used in words like "polygon" (a shape with many sides) or "polygamy" (having multiple spouses). Therefore, the correct answer is "many, several."

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    Mon

    • A.

      Warn

    • B.

      Water

    • C.

      Large, great

    • D.

      Small

    Correct Answer
    A. Warn
    Explanation
    The word "warn" is the correct answer because it is the only word that does not have any relationship or connection with the other words in the list. The other words, "mon" (which seems to be an incomplete word), "water" (a noun), "large" and "great" (both adjectives), and "small" (an adjective) all have some similarity or association with each other, but "warn" stands out as the odd one out.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    Amphi

    • A.

      Water

    • B.

      Both ends or all sides

    • C.

      Many, several

    • D.

      Warn

    Correct Answer
    B. Both ends or all sides
    Explanation
    The word "amphi" is a prefix that comes from the Greek word "amphi" meaning "both" or "all". Therefore, when we say "amphi" in relation to something, it implies that it has a presence or characteristic on both ends or all sides. In the context of the word "amphi" being associated with "water", it suggests that water surrounds or encompasses something from both ends or all sides.
