olfactory has to do with smell, auditory has to do with hearing.

An alumnus is a graduate student just as a retiree is a graduated employee

im assuming you mean "olfactory", instead of "oldfactory."

olfactory pertains to the sense of smell.
auditory pertains to the sense of hearing.
B-Ans.


the second 1 is A, i believe.

a alumnus completes (school) whereas a student is still in it.

a retiree completes his/her job, while an employert still does it.

sorry, if thats kind of wierd.

On B and E, note that on B, "sense" can be subdivided (into 5 categories) and E "bitter" is just one way of tasting-- hearing and smelling both belong to the same category (types of senses).

On the other one, I think you could have eliminated C and D-- these are essentially synonyms, and "student" is such a basic concept that it's unlikely to have a direct synonym you've never heard of... a "finalist" is a good competitor, and a tourist is led by a guide...what is a student led by... a teacher, and if "alumnus" were a teacher, you'd probably have heard so by now. So you take your pick between A and B... I guess.
