尋找非同義詞 毛孟靜

多學會同義詞,不論作文說話,用意思接近的不同vocab,會令人覺得內容豐富一點,而不是重複囉囌。以下題目,問的是ABCD 當中,哪一個並非同義詞?又抑或,答案係E,個個類同?

1. The protesting young are resentful of _______ and discipline.

A. unconformity B. uniformity

C. conformity D. conventionality E. 個個都得

這一題比較明顯,說抗議的年輕人非常不滿XX 與紀律;填充當然就係「法規」一類的字。UN conformity,當然就不屬於這一類了。所以答案係A。

2. The area is full of problems. And the dignitaries came and had a mere _____tour of the neighbourhood.

A. superficial B. cursory

C. hasty D. perfunctory因為mere(只不過)一字,立刻有「唔慌好嘢」的意思,也即是敷衍的、是旦的,於是C. hasty 急速的,就不算是同義詞了。

3. The residents also saw the district chief display a ________ fashion sense.

A. gaudy B. tacky

C. bling-bling D. commonplace「居民也留意到地區領袖那副_____ 的衣品味。」答案中,bling-bling 等於gaudy及tacky,總之就係俗。但commonplace 只係指平凡普通,答案係D。

4. And we’re all bored of the officials’ condescending way of talking. Their attitude is so _____-it-all.

A. know B. fake C. done D. seen 不管是know-或done-、seen-it-all,都係一副「我識晒,我話你知」的姿態。所以B 的fake 假扮,肯定另類。

5. They say political divisions may risk ______ this business hub’s reputation.

A. harming B. tarnishing

C. tainting D. hurting

講的都是損害名聲、使之不光彩。於是答案係沒有寫出來的E,係個個都得。

6. The authorities urge the protesters to stop ______ with the order of things.

A. playing B. disrupting

C. toying D. fiddling

似乎ABCD 都係講玩弄、搞亂秩序,即又係E?全部係同義詞?小心呢,這一題比較「陰濕」,因為考埋文法,用B 是錯的── disrupting 後面,不需要也不准有原句的with。

7. Not too sure what to say. The situation remains rather ______.

A. uncertain B. unconditional

C. unsettled D. iffy

話說情不明朗,iffy 也是這個意思。Iffy來自if,係個潮語。這一條的非同義詞,係B. unconditional 沒條件的。

8. Things are not always as they ______.

A. appear B. look C. form D. seem

「事物往往並非就像看起來的樣子。」這題比較淺是吧。ABD 都係同義詞,都用得,但form 就唔得。所以答案係C。
