    • E.

    Correct Answer
    A. Free - fettered
    Explanation

"Choleric" fits this description as it means easily angered or irritable, which aligns with the idea of Frazer being boastful and having a fiery temperament.

    Given Below is a Paragraph. Read it  and Answer the Question:I fretted the other night at the hotel at the stranger who broke into my chamber after midnight, claiming to share it. But after his lamp had smoked the chamber full and I had turned round to the wall in despair, the man blew out his lamp, knelt down at his bedside, and made in low whisper a long earnest prayer. Then was the relation entirely changed between us. I fretted no more, but respected and liked him.The probable purpose of the author using the phrase, “lamp had smoked the chamber full” is to

    • A.

      Show a low grade fuel was used

    • B.

      Utilize figurative language

    • C.

      Establish a period of time

    • D.

      indicate the lamp was turned up too high

    • E.

      Establish the faultiness of the lamp

    Correct Answer
    C. Establish a period of time
    Explanation
    The phrase "lamp had smoked the chamber full" suggests that a significant amount of time had passed while the lamp was lit and smoking, filling the room with smoke. This indicates that the author is trying to establish a period of time, emphasizing the duration of the situation before the man blew out the lamp and prayed. The phrase does not imply the use of low-grade fuel, figurative language, the lamp being turned up too high, or the faultiness of the lamp.

Poetry provides the one permissible way of saying one thing and meaning another. People say, “Why don’t you say what you mean?” We never do that, do we, being all of us too much poets.

      Caution

    Correct Answer
    C. Reservations
    Explanation
    The word "diffidence" is used in the passage to describe a behavior or instinct of talking in parables, hints, and indirections. This behavior can be attributed to reservations, as the individuals mentioned in the passage may have reservations about directly expressing their thoughts or feelings.

    Which one has proper use of preposition?

    • A.

      "If I am lying, the curse of Allah be on me and may I be drowned in some period. May I even be deprived at a decent burial!"

    • B.

      "If I am lying, the curse of Allah be on me and may I be drowned in some period. May I even be deprived off a decent burial!"

    • C.

      "If I am lying, the curse of Allah be on me and may I be drowned in some period. May I even be deprived from a decent burial!"

    • D.

      "If I am lying, the curse of Allah be on me and may I be drowned in some period. May I even be deprived of a decent burial!"

    Correct Answer
    D. "If I am lying, the curse of Allah be on me and may I be drowned in some period. May I even be deprived of a decent burial!"
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "If I am lying, the curse of Allah be on me and may I be drowned in some period. May I even be deprived of a decent burial!" This is the proper use of the preposition "of" after the verb "deprived." It indicates what is being taken away or withheld, in this case, a decent burial. The other options ("deprived off" and "deprived from") are incorrect and not grammatically accurate.

    Correct Answer
    B. Willing to believe easily
    Explanation

    Choose the correct one:

    • A.

      She reminded me the nice days of my childhood

    • B.

      She reminded me for the nice days of my childhood

    • C.

      She reminded me on the nice days of my childhood

    • D.

      She reminded me of the nice days of my childhood

    Correct Answer
    D. She reminded me of the nice days of my childhood
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "She reminded me of the nice days of my childhood." This is because when we want to express that someone brought back memories or made us think of something, we use the preposition "of." In this case, the phrase "of the nice days of my childhood" indicates that the person reminded the speaker about the pleasant days they experienced during their childhood.

    Explanation

    The parade route was down the main boulevard:

    • A.

      Avenue

    • B.

      Driveaway

    • C.

      Highway

    • D.

      Alley

    Correct Answer
    A. Avenue
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Avenue because a parade route typically takes place on a main road or boulevard, which is commonly referred to as an avenue. A driveaway is not a commonly used term for a road, a highway is a larger road designed for high-speed travel, and an alley is a narrow passage typically found between buildings, none of which would be suitable for a parade route.
