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. 

Gwendolyn Brooks’ character Maud Martha appears ------- but feels great rage: she ------- her emotions with a mask of compliance.

Answer Choices

Right! (Applause.)


The word “but” in the first part of the sentence suggests that Maud Martha’s appearance does not accurately represent her emotions. It is therefore logical to say that she “camouflages,” or masks, her anger by appearing to be “docile,” or compliant.
