Question:

Despite her fear of heights, she was _______ to be so far up the mountain. A)dismayed B)unwilling C)ashamed D)thrilled E)alarmed

Proggo P.
Answer:

The occurrence of the word 'despite' shows that there is a contradiction within the sentence. A woman who has a fear for heights must normally be afraid to be far up in the mountain. But the use of the word 'despite' implies that, on the contrary, she was happy to be there. Among the choices, it is only the word thrilled' that has this meaning. So, (D) is the answer.

Question:

What is the are of an isosceles right-angled triangle whose equal sides are 2 units in length.

Proggo P.

So, if one of the equal sides is considered as the base, the other equal side will be the perpendicular height. So using the formula: Area of the triangle=1/2*(height of the triangle)*(base of the triangle) We get, Area of the triangle=1/2*2*2 Therefore, area of the triangle=2
