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. 

A dictatorship ------- its citizens to be docile and finds it expedient to make outcasts of those who do not ------- .

Answer Choices

Right! (Applause.)

Explanation

Answering this question depends in part on your knowledge of vocabulary. You have to know what the words “dictatorship,” “docile,” and “expedient” mean. You also have to watch out for key words such as not. If you leave out the word not then answer choices like (A) and (B) make sense. But only choice (C) makes sense. A dictatorship would probably require its citizens to be docile & make outcasts of those who do not conform to its rules.
