I have completed this exercise and I also added short explanations of each answer or a comment:
. The journalist's article, expected to be a harsh critique
of the politician, actually portrayed her in a very positive light.
(I used a dictionary to see which word is right for the context.)
. The car company's losses continued to mount
as the product recalls drove customers away, rarely a precursor
of future growth.
(Again, dictionary, I didn't know what product recall is but I found out eventually. It's when a faulty product is taken back to manufacturer. 'Rarely a precursor of a future growth'. It matches the most.)
. After a series of steep ascents the bike race culminates
, mercifully, on a flat stretch where bikers race for the finish line.
. Choose the word that is most nearly OPPOSITE to the word in capital letters below. The answer: germane
. Dennis is loving his new job in Australia." "What? I didn't know he does live
(He just lives there, there is no reference to anything).
. Samantha would have made sure Harry was here if she had known you
were coming too.
(I have suspicions that it could be also correct: 'when she had known I'. 'Would have' can be used in a sentence without 'if-clause'. I'm not entirely sure about the last one but it should be correct.)
Please talk to us ! ;-D
Chcialbym wiedziec co to za cwiczenia w jakiej szkole i do czego i po co :D i konkretnie gdzie byl problem, trzeba bylo tylko ze slownikiem dopasowac kontekst. Bez slownika tez mozna ale trzeba sie skupic :D (bo niektore wyrazy mozna bez slownika zgadnac i ich kontekst) ? Byloby milo wiedziec jaki konkretnie mialas problem.
p.s pisze po angielsku posty bo latwiej mi sie skupic na jednym jezyku niz na dwoch naraz takze uzywam jednego jezyka w odpowiedziach.
