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. 

There has been little ------- criticism written about de la Mare; indeed, that which has been written is at the two extremes, either appallingly ------- or bitterly antagonistic.

Answer Choices

Hint

The word that fills the first blank describes what little criticism about de la Mare is not “at the two extremes.”

Since the majority of the criticism about de la Mare is said to be “at the two extremes,” the word that fills the second blank needs to be an opposite of “antagonistic.”

Answer

While both “complimentary” and “sycophantic” are opposed to “antagonistic,” only “objective” fits logically in the first blank.
