Vocabulary Quiz, The Active Reader
Instructions: Choose the option that best represents the meaning of the italicized word(s). In some cases, you should be able to infer the word’s meaning from the context; in others, you may have to use a dictionary. If two words seem similar in meaning, choose the one that best fits the context in which the word occurs. If you choose an incorrect answer, consult The Active Reader for the context of the sentence (the relevant page numbers will appear along with the solutions when you submit your answers).
