    Explanation
    An ogre is defined as a brute or a large monster, often portrayed as a frightful giant. This term is commonly used to describe a terrifying and intimidating creature.

    Explanation
    The antonym of the verb "oppose" means to support or promote, which aligns with the word "advocate." Therefore, "advocate" is the correct answer as it represents the opposite meaning of "oppose" in this context.

    The word "gist" means the main or essential part of something. In this context, the speaker is saying that they never understood or grasped the main point or essence of the person's story. The other options - "jaded," "ogre," and "bandy" - do not fit the sentence or make sense in this context.

    Correct Answer
    D. Jaded
    Explanation
    Jaded is the correct answer because it means worn out or dulled, especially from overindulgence. This fits with the definition given, as someone who is jaded is likely to be tired or bored due to excessive indulgence in something. The other options, ogre, bandy, and gist, do not have the same meaning or connotation as jaded in relation to being worn out or dulled.

    Correct Answer
    A. Mesmerize
    Explanation
    The word "mesmerize" means to captivate or fascinate someone to the point where they are entranced or spellbound. It is the most suitable definition among the given options because "ogre" refers to a large, ugly monster, "bandy" means to exchange words or arguments, and "dastardly" describes someone who is cowardly or wicked. Therefore, "mesmerize" is the correct answer as it aligns with the definition provided.

    • D.

      Efface

    Correct Answer
    B. Bandy
    Explanation
    Bandy means to exchange words or discuss casually. The other options do not match the given definition. Entity refers to something that exists as a distinct and independent unit. Gist means the main point or essence of something. Efface means to erase or make oneself inconspicuous. Therefore, bandy is the correct answer as it is the only option that fits the given definition.

      Charisma

    • C.

      Efface

    • D.

      Ogre

    Correct Answer
    C. Efface
    Explanation
    Efface is a synonym of the verb "erase." It means to remove or make something disappear, particularly by rubbing or wiping it away. In the context of the question, efface is the correct answer because it is the only word listed that has a similar meaning to erase. Bandy, charisma, and ogre do not have any connection to the concept of erasing or removing something.
