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. 

In some ancient cultures, colors were considered very powerful; some societies even believed that red objects had ------- effect, restoring good health through their color alone.

Answer Choices

Right-o!

Explanation

The sentence discusses the belief of “some ancient cultures” that colors were “very powerful.” If “some societies” believed that red objects were capable of “restoring good health” simply because they were red, it makes sense to say that those societies believed that the color red “had a salutary effect,” or could cure ailments and promote health.
