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. 

Allison had only ------- knowledge of the recent legislation; although she had glanced at a summary, she had not ------- the details of the new law's many provisions.

Answer Choices

Yep! That's right.

Explanation

The sentence indicates that Allison had “glanced at a summary” but had not done something concerning the details of the law. If Allison had taken only a quick look at a summary of the legislation, she certainly would not have “examined,” or looked closely at, the details of the law. As a result, her knowledge of the legislation would be “superficial,” or shallow, rather than deep and thorough.
