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 (23).
She wants to work and return to her parents at least a portion of the money they paid for her studies. The four answer choices are words of the same root, but only choice (A) a portion, is the correct form of the word. It does not make sense to say a parcel of land (B), a partition (C) or division (D) in this sentence.
