Which Analogies and Sentance Completions did you find most difficult, or would be most difficult for most students. What did you answer for them and why?

There was one sentence competion, like the professor "spiced" up a lecture or something? Does anyone remember the answer to that?

Anyone else?

one analogy i didnt know was comparing neophtyte to beginner. i put quack to doctor for my choice but i dont know if this is right

No, that one was rumormonger:gossip.

A neophyte *is* a beginner; a quack *is not* a doctor.

was it subsequent or intermittent
i think it was subsequent

and for another one the choices were scrutiny and cynical
anyone remeber

I think the answers to those two were intermittent (100% sure) and scrutiny (don't remember the question, but I think I put scrutiny for an answer somewhere).

why intermittent

it said the authors success was ___ as opposed to agtah who enjoed more lifelong fame

sunsequent means immediately following time.
intermittent means starting and stopping

it was confusing question

By Nutmag345 (Nutmag345) on Monday, October 13, 2003 - 04:27 pm: Edit

I agree that intermittent was not a perfect choice, but it is by far the best choice. The sentence was contrasting Agatha's eternal fame to other authors' short lived fame. Now intermittent implies that an author is famous for a short while, and then unpopular and this cycle continues. Subsequent means following in time, as you aptly put it, but it does not contrast Agatha's long term fame in any way. Infact, if you plug subsequent into that sentence, you can clearly see for yourself that it doesn't "sound" right. HTH
