    Correct Answer
    B. Rush of something
    Explanation
    The given options "to make fun of," "rush of something," and "anxiety" are all related to different emotions or actions. However, "rush of something" is the only option that suggests a sudden surge or increase in a particular thing, which can be interpreted as a feeling or experience. Therefore, "rush of something" is the most appropriate answer among the given options.

    Correct Answer
    A. Embarrassment
    Explanation
    The word "consternation" refers to a feeling of fear or anxiety. However, the correct answer for this question is "embarrassment." While both words are related to negative emotions, they have different meanings. Embarrassment is a feeling of self-consciousness or shame, often caused by something awkward or humiliating.

    Explanation
    The word "precocious" refers to someone or something that develops or matures earlier than expected. In this context, it means reaching maturity early.

    Correct Answer
    B. Scoff at
    Explanation
    The word "scoff at" means to mock or ridicule someone or something. It implies a dismissive and contemptuous attitude towards the subject. In the given context, "deride," "old fashioned," and "doubtful" all suggest a negative or critical view, but only "scoff at" specifically conveys the idea of mocking or ridiculing. Therefore, "scoff at" is the correct answer.

    Explanation
    The word "disparage" means to belittle or criticize someone or something. It implies a negative judgment or opinion about someone's worth or abilities.

    Explanation
    The word "confidant(e)" refers to a person with whom one shares a close and trusting relationship, often confiding in them about personal matters. In this context, the word "companion" is the most appropriate synonym as it captures the idea of a close and trusted friend who provides support, understanding, and companionship.

    The term "obsolescence" refers to something that is no longer in use or relevant. "Out of date" is a synonym for obsolescence, indicating that something is no longer current or up to date.

These words convey the same sense of uncertainty or doubt and can be used interchangeably in a sentence. The word "chewed" and "pacify" do not have the same meaning or connotation as "dubious", so they cannot be considered as synonyms.
