    • C.

      Bartered

    • D.

      Uninterested

    Correct Answer
    D. Uninterested
    Explanation
    The word "uninterested" means lacking interest or enthusiasm. In the given sentence, it is stated that the secluded tribesmen were fascinated by the explorer's digital wristwatch. This implies that they were interested in the wristwatch. Therefore, "uninterested" is the word that means the opposite of "fascinated" in this context.

      Listless

    • D.

      Inherited

    Correct Answer
    B. Modern
    Explanation
    The word "modern" is the correct answer because it is the opposite of "ancient," which is used to describe the box. The sentence suggests that the box is old and from the past, so it makes sense that the divers would retrieve it from a shipwreck. "Cultured," "listless," and "inherited" do not provide an opposite or contrasting meaning to "ancient," so they are not the correct answer choices.

    Correct Answer
    C. Softly
    Explanation
    The word "delicately" implies a gentle and careful action, which aligns with the idea of lifting a newborn baby. "Meaningfully" and "furiously" do not fit the context of a father lifting his newborn daughter. "Eventually" does not convey the gentleness and care associated with handling a newborn. Therefore, "softly" is the most appropriate word to describe how the father lifted his daughter.
