    Explanation
    The word "opposite in meaning" suggests that we are looking for a word that is the opposite of "plaintiff." In a legal context, a plaintiff is the person who brings a case against another party, while a defendant is the person who is being accused or sued. Therefore, "defendant" is the opposite of "plaintiff" and is the correct answer in this case.

    Correct Answer
    A. Burnt slowly
    Explanation
    The word "smouldered" suggests that the sulphur was burning slowly and emitting smoke, rather than blazing or oozing. "Glistened" means to shine or sparkle, which is not the appropriate description for the sulphur in this context. Therefore, the option "burnt slowly" is the closest in meaning to the underlined word.
