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. 

Eduardo Galeano’s novel consists of discrete vignettes, so the reader must supply the invisible ------- binding such apparently ------- parts.

Answer Choices

Right! (Applause.)

Explanation

The word “so” indicates that the sentence is a cause-and-effect statement: the second half of the sentence must describe the way readers must respond to a novel that “consists of discrete vignettes.” Inserting the terms in choice (D) into the sentence creates a logical cause-and-effect statement. If the novel is composed of “discrete,” or unconnected, episodes, then the reader must supply the “connections” that bind these apparently “independent” parts.
