i didn't get these Qs on the SAT on Saturday so this must be experimental.
anyhow, virtuoso is someone who is really good at music. so the answer must be (A)

lull
To cause to sleep or rest; soothe or calm.
To deceive into trustfulness
so answer must be (C)

.... Why?

By Y17k (Y17k) on Wednesday, October 15, 2003 - 09:23 am: Edit

1.
WORDS make up a LANGUAGE, as NOTES make up MUSIC

2.
thicket is a group of shrubs, while grove is a group of trees

3. renumeration is a reward for labor, and a trophy is a reward for victory

But don't WEEKS make up an YEAR as well?

By Justice (Justice) on Thursday, October 16, 2003 - 08:56 am: Edit

Week do make up a year but instead of being stubborn and attempting your answer, try to look for the best answer. For a better bridge, consider that words are the basic components of language, and notes are the basic components of music.
