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. 

Everyone who saw the play agreed that the lead actor’s performance was especially 
------- : it was so deeply affecting that it moved many audience members to tears.

Answer Choices

Right! (Applause.)


The sentence indicates that the actor’s performance was very deeply affecting and moving — in  other words, it evoked emotional reactions in many who saw it — and even caused some people to cry. Because the term “poignant” refers to something that is very moving, affecting, or touching, it makes sense to suggest that people would describe the performance as “especially poignant.”
