Critical Reading > Sentence Completions

Choose the word or set of words that, when inserted in the sentence, best fits the meaning of the sentence as a whole. 

Dahntay’s ------- over winning the prestigious prize was ------- only by the fact that his father was unable to attend the ceremony.

Answer Choices

Yep! That's right.


This sentence contrasts something positive (winning a “prestigious prize”) with something negative (the father’s absence), so it makes sense that the missing terms reflect Dahntay’s conflicted emotions. His joy, or “ebullience,” might certainly be curbed, or “tempered,” by the fact that his father could not be present for the special occasion.
