Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Recognition

    • A.

      Acknowledgment

    • B.

      Accredit

    • C.

      Accusatory

    Correct Answer
    A. Acknowledgment
    Explanation
    The word "recognition" refers to the act of acknowledging or accepting something as valid or true. "Acknowledgment" is a synonym of recognition, as it also means the act of accepting or admitting the existence or truth of something. The other options, "accredit" and "accusatory," do not have the same meaning as recognition. Therefore, the correct answer is "acknowledgment."

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The highest point, or summit.  

    • A.

      Acme

    • B.

      Accustom

    • C.

      Accost

    Correct Answer
    A. Acme
    Explanation
    Acme refers to the highest point or summit. It is often used to describe the pinnacle or peak of something, whether it be a mountain or a person's career. In this context, acme is the correct answer as it directly relates to the given definition. Accustom and accost do not have the same meaning and are therefore not the correct choices.

      Accumulate

    • B.

      Accompanist

    • C.

      Acoustic

    Correct Answer
    C. Acoustic
    Explanation
    The word "acoustic" is the correct answer because it relates to the act or sense of hearing. It is commonly used to describe sound or music that is produced or heard through natural means, without the use of electronic amplification or enhancement. The other two options, "accumulate" and "accompanist," do not have any direct connection to the act or sense of hearing.

      Accurate

    Correct Answer
    B. Acquaint
    Explanation
    The word "acquaint" means to make familiar or conversant with something or someone. In this context, it is the most appropriate word choice as it aligns perfectly with the given definition. "Achillean" and "accurate" do not convey the same meaning and are therefore incorrect options.

    Correct Answer
    B. Acquiescence
    Explanation
    Passive consent refers to a situation where someone agrees or gives permission without actively expressing it. Acquiescence, the correct answer, aligns with this definition as it means accepting or agreeing to something without protest or resistance. Achromatic refers to something without color, accomplish means to achieve or complete a task successfully.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Anything gained, or made one's own, usually by effort or labor.

    • A.

      Accredit

    • B.

      Accuse

    • C.

      Acquisition

    Correct Answer
    C. Acquisition
    Explanation
    The word "acquisition" refers to gaining or obtaining something, typically through effort or labor. It implies that the person has worked hard to acquire or achieve something. "Accredit" means to give official recognition or approval, while "accuse" means to charge someone with wrongdoing. However, neither of these words convey the sense of gaining or making something one's own through effort or labor, which is why "acquisition" is the correct answer.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    To free or clear, as from accusation.  

    • A.

      Ache

    • B.

      Acquit

    • C.

      Accredit

    Correct Answer
    B. Acquit
    Explanation
    The word "acquit" means to free or clear someone from accusation. It is the most appropriate word among the given options as it directly relates to the concept of being free from accusation. "Ache" means to feel persistent pain, and "accredit" means to give official recognition or authorization, which do not convey the same meaning as "acquit" in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    A discharge from accusation by judicial action.  

    • A.

      Accompanist

    • B.

      Accuse

    • C.

      Acquittal

    Correct Answer
    C. Acquittal
    Explanation
    An acquittal refers to the discharge from accusation by judicial action. This means that after a trial, a person accused of a crime is found not guilty and is therefore acquitted of the charges. An acquittal can occur when there is not enough evidence to prove the accused's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt or if the jury or judge determines that the accused is innocent. In such cases, the accused is released and no longer held accountable for the alleged crime.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    To get as one's own.  

    • A.

      Acquire

    • B.

      Accustom

    • C.

      Accompaniment

    Correct Answer
    A. Acquire
    Explanation
    The word "acquire" means to obtain or gain possession of something. In the context of the given question, "to get as one's own", it is the most suitable word that conveys the meaning of obtaining or gaining something. "Accustom" means to make someone familiar with something, and "accompaniment" refers to something that goes along with or accompanies something else. Therefore, "acquire" is the correct answer.
