Question 4:

All the words we covered earlier are __________. 

 

  1. Occupations 
  2. Careers 
  3. Ambitions 
  4. All of the above 

 

Answer:

4) All of the above

Explanation:

Let’s understand this question carefully. All the words that we went through while answering the previous questions are occupations. But they are also careers. Career is a synonym for occupation. Synonym means another word with the same meaning. So career is a synonym for occupation. Ambitions mean a desire and determination to do something. So you may have the ambition to become a surgeon or athlete or journalist. 
So the correct answer is 4) All of the above.

  1. Thermometer, pale, feverish, bed-bound
  2. Water, sweat, disagreement, toss 

 

Answer:

1) Thermometer, pale, feverish, bed-bound

Explanation:

This one is very simple. So the terms that are related to the term ill are thermometer, pale, feverish, bed-bound. Bed-bound means you are so sick that you can’t even get out of bed. Toss means to just throw something lightly or casually. 
So the correct answer is 1) Thermometer, pale, feverish, bed-bound


 

Question 6:

Find the group of words associated with the term dining.

  1. Clinking glasses, aroma, delectable, piping hot
  2. Apron, detergent, spade, greasy

 

Answer:

1) Clinking glasses, aroma, delectable, piping hot

Explanation:

When you think of dining you think of restaurants, cafes or hawker centres. Let’s start looking at words from the first option. Clinking glasses make you imagine a fine dine restaurant. Aroma means a very nice smell or the fragrance of food. Delectable is just a fancier word for delicious. So you may use this word in place of delicious next time. Piping hot you all know is immediately cooked hot food. 
So the correct answer is 1) Clinking glasses, aroma, delectable, piping hot.


 

Question 7:

Has the emboldened word in the sentence been used correctly?

The children trudged energetically towards the shimmering lake.

 

  1. yes
  2. no

 

Answer:

2) no

Explanation:

To answer the question, let’s find out what trudged means. It is basically walking in slow, sluggish manner because of exhaustion and lack of energy. So of course we can not use trudged together energetically as they are opposites. 
So the correct answer is 2) no. 

 

Now, let’s move on to solve some questions on vocabulary cloze. 


 

Question 8:

Read the passage carefully. Choose words given in the box and fill in each blank with the most suitable answer. Write its letter (A to H) in each blank. 
The young boy yelled at Mrs. Walker for getting in his way. He pointed his finger 1) __________ at her and told her to keep quiet. 
Mrs Walker was shocked at how rude the boy was. “Where are your parents?” she shouted. “I want to speak to them.” The boy chuckled. “My parents are not here. You won’t be able to complain about me,” he said __________.
Mrs Walker was 3) __________ but there was nothing she could do. She even has to step aside to let the boy pass. The boy sped off with his trolley. He turned to the corner and was soon out to 4) __________. With a 5) __________, Mrs. Walker continued with her shopping.

(E) livid           (F) loving           (G) sight              (H) smugly 

 

Answer: 

  1. rudely (C)
  2. smugly (H)
  3. livid (E)
  4. sight (G)
  5. sigh (A)

Explanation:

  1. The answer is (C) rudely. We can’t use smugly as it's used to describe facial expression. As the boy pointed finger and yelled, that would be described as rude. 
  2. Now here the answer would be (H) smugly. Since the boy replied to Mrs. Walker with a chuckle.
  3. The correct answer is (E) livid. Now you may end up picking anger, but it's a noun, and you can't use that. So you need to use livid which means very very angry. 
  4. The correct answer is (G) sight. When a person is out of sight, you can’t see them anymore. 
  5. The correct answer is (A) sigh. 


 

Question 9:

Fill in the blank for 1)

 

  1. Aggressively
  2. Honestly 

 

Answer:

So the correct answer is 2) smirkingly 


 

Question 11:

For the same passage, fill in the blank for 3)

 

  1. Tickled

For the same passage, fill in the blank for 4)

 

  1. Dissolved
