    Correct Answer
    B. Fire
    Explanation
    Pyromania is a condition characterized by an obsessive fascination with fire and a compulsion to set fires. The word "fire" is directly related to pyromania as it is the primary element that pyromaniacs are fixated on. The other options, "eat" and "sound," do not have any direct connection to pyromania. Therefore, "fire" is the correct answer.

    • D.

      Bind

    Correct Answer
    D. Bind
    Explanation
    The word "bind" is the correct answer because it is the only word in the given list that relates to the concept of tying or securing something together. The other words do not have any clear connection to this idea.

    • C.

    • D.

      Watch

    Correct Answer
    A. Free
    Explanation
    The word "liberate" means to set free or release someone or something from a situation or constraint. The word "free" is a synonym of "liberate" and means to be unrestricted or not under the control or influence of others. Therefore, "free" is the correct answer as it is a synonym of "liberate". The other words listed (tell, ring, watch) are not synonyms of "liberate" and do not convey the same meaning.

      Smooth

    Correct Answer
    B. Join
    Explanation
    The word "join" is the correct answer because it is the only word in the given list that means to connect or bring together. "Junction" refers to a point where two or more things are joined, but it does not involve the action of connecting. "Junky" means something that is of poor quality or related to junk, which is unrelated to the concept of joining. "Together" means in union or in a group, but it does not specifically imply the act of joining. "Smooth" means having a flat or even surface, which is unrelated to joining.

    Explanation

      Whisper

    • C.

      Wish

    • D.

      Apart

    Correct Answer
    D. Apart
    Explanation
    The word "apart" is the correct answer because it is the only word in the list that is not directly related to the concept of secrecy. While "secret," "hide," "whisper," and "wish" all have connotations of keeping something hidden or private, "apart" means separate or distant. It does not inherently suggest secrecy or confidentiality.

      Inside

    • B.

      Together

    • C.

      Close

    • D.

      Both

    Correct Answer
    C. Close
    Explanation
    The word "close" can mean near or nearby, which is the most fitting definition in this context. The other options, "include," "inside," "together," and "both," do not have the same meaning as "close" in terms of proximity. Therefore, "close" is the correct answer.

      Meet

    • B.

      Hold

    • C.

      Orange

    • D.

      Touch

    Correct Answer
    D. Touch
    Explanation
    The word "tangible" means something that can be touched or felt physically. Among the given options, "touch" is the only word that directly relates to the concept of physical contact or sensation. "Meet" and "hold" do not necessarily involve physical touch, while "orange" is unrelated to the concept of touch. Therefore, "touch" is the most appropriate word in the context of "tangible".

      Talk

    • D.

      Agree

    Correct Answer
    B. More
    Explanation
    The word "more" is the correct answer because it is the only option that is related to the other words given in the question. "Surplus" and "wash" are unrelated to the other words, while "talk" and "agree" are synonyms of each other but do not have any connection to the other words. "More" is the only option that fits with the idea of increasing or adding to something, which is suggested by the other words.

    Rate this question:

    • B.

      Under

    • C.

      More

    • D.

      Apart

    Correct Answer
    A. Cry out
    Explanation
    The word "clamor" means to cry out or make a loud, noisy outcry. It can be used to describe a situation where people are shouting or protesting loudly. In this context, "cry out" is the best synonym for "clamor" as it captures the idea of making a loud vocal expression or outcry. The other options, "under," "more," and "apart," do not convey the same meaning as "clamor."

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Primer

    Correct Answer
    first
    Explanation
    The word "primer" refers to an introductory or basic level of something. In this context, "first" is the most logical choice as it means the initial or beginning stage. Therefore, "first" is the correct answer as it aligns with the meaning of "primer" as an introductory concept or step.

  • 13. 

    Marina

    Correct Answer
    sea

    The word "marina" is associated with a sea or an ocean. A marina is a harbor or a dock where boats and yachts are kept, and these are typically located by the sea. Therefore, the correct answer is "sea".

    Decimal

    Correct Answer
    ten
    Explanation
    The word "decimal" refers to a numbering system that uses the base 10, which is the most commonly used system in everyday life. The word "ten" is the number that represents the quantity after nine and before eleven in the decimal system. Therefore, "ten" is the correct answer as it directly relates to the given word "decimal".

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    Sonar

    Correct Answer
    sound
    Explanation
    Sonar is a technique that uses sound waves to navigate, communicate, and detect objects underwater. Sound is the correct answer because sonar relies on the transmission and reception of sound waves to gather information about the underwater environment. By emitting sound waves and measuring the time it takes for them to bounce back after hitting an object, sonar systems can determine the distance, size, and shape of underwater objects. Therefore, sound is an essential component of sonar technology.
