Free Ebook: Top 40 Words with Meanings and Synonyms

Vocabulary in competitive examinations (banking and government examinations) is quite important. In several cases, it might be possible that the student does not know the meaning of a word which can cause them to lose a mark by selecting the wrong option. However, in this case, negative marking can ruin their efforts if they do not manage to clear a cut-off. So, it is quite necessary to be well prepared against such problems or cases. To understand how a question may be included in an examination (such as SBI PO), check out the question below –


“Select the most effective words from the given options to fill the blanks and make the sentences meaningfully complete.”

b. Neophyte, Salacious
c. Maverick, Audacious
d. Prodigy, Radical

Explanation: Option [a.] and [b.] do not make sense as Salacious means obscene which isn’t hinted anywhere while not accepting the standards does not make anyone crazy, and if someone is a Prodigy, they may not always be radical in their ways. However, someone who is a Maverick tries to follow unconventional ways to achieve their objectives or deliver results and hence they must be bold or audacious. Therefore, [c.] is the correct answer.
