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. 

Although Paul Bowles wrote many musical pieces during his prolific career, his work as a composer was ultimately ------- his writing, for which he received the most acclaim.

Answer Choices

Right! (Applause.)


The sentence indicates that Paul Bowles had a “prolific,” or very productive, career as a music composer but “received the most acclaim” for his writing. If Bowles received more praise for his writing than for his “many musical pieces,” it seems clear that his writing “overshadowed,” or was more prominent and considered more important than, “his work as a composer.”
