In paragraph completion questions, students are presented with a paragraph(s) from which words have been omitted. Students are required to select the option that is most appropriate to the context. The main difference between sentence completion and paragraph completion is that the paragraph enables the student to answer correctly based on the content of the passage rather than a single sentence.
In each of the following paragraphs there are numbered blanks indicating that words or phrases have been omitted. For each numbered blank, four completions are provided. First read through the entire paragraph. Then, for each numbered blank, choose the completion that is most appropriate.
Select an Answer
Select the most appropriate completion for blank (12).
The missing word modifies a noun in the masculine form. Answer choices (A) and (B) are feminine forms and answer choice (D) is usually not used as a number that modifies nouns.
