In the past decade, rapid technological progress and a greater demand for high-quality digital imaging have led to dramatic advances in video display technology. The dominant technology currently used in most consumer product displays is the active matrix liquid crystal diode display(LCD).

LCDs apply thin-film transistors (TFTs) of amorphous or polycrystalline silicon sandwiched between two glass plates. The TFTs supply voltage to liquid-crystal-filled cells, or pixels, between the sheets of glass. When hit with an electric charge, the liquid crystals untwist to an exact degree to filter white light generated by a lamp. This filtered light shines directly on the viewing screen or, in the case of projection televisions, is projected through a small chip that acts as a lens. LCDs that are capable of producing color images, such as in televisions and computers, reproduce colors through a process of subtraction, blocking out particular color wavelengths from the spectrum of white light until only the desired color remains. It is the variation of the intensity of light permitted to pass through the matrix of liquid crystals that enables LCD displays to present images full of gradations of different colors.

The nature and functioning of LCD displays present many advantages relative to other display technologies. The amount of power required to untwist the crystals to display images, even dark ones, is much lower than that required for analogous processes using other technologies, such as plasma. The dense array of crystals displays images from computer or other video graphics sources extremely well, with full color detail, no flicker, and no screen burn-in. Moreover, the number of pixels per square inch on an LCD display is typically higher than that for other display technologies, so LCD monitors are particularly good at displaying large amounts of data with exceptional clarity and precision. As a result, LCD TVs are considered the best display platform for video games, high definition television, movie special effects, and other graphics-intensive uses.

the DIFFIDENT Vs DOUBTFUL thing,the ACCOMODATION Vs another word....Somebody kindly post what is the exact issue.I will try to answer it.

3. Sanguine: Maria's face revealed her sanguine temperament.

Easy
Doubtful
Diffident
Contemptuous

4. Indoctrinate: Now that a generation of children have been indoctrinated against the values of their parents, we are helpless.

Brainwashed
Ingrained
Warranted
Mentored

Firstly, I couldn't convince myself why warranted is losing out...."indoctrinate, mentored, brainwashed all are close in meanings....and indoctrinate do not have a negative connotation in any way.....(u would rather go for brainwash then...isn't it?). So the most out of context is warranted only. Don't know where am i going wrong?

Diffident means lacking confidence...so i went with it, (sanguine means confident,optimistic etc)

As far Allowance/accomodation is concerned...i think both fits the bill...unless allowance has a different connotation in terms of money ( m not sure)

To conclude : I AM CONFUSED


Me too
Sophisticated - correct
Fitful - irregular so regular is correct one.

OA

Diffident
Mentored
Accomadation

Now give your reasonong for correct one or if you understand last two. As I guess 2 options will go for each of these.

You had not seen question properly. it is :

For each of the words below, a contextual usage is provided. Pick the word from the alternatives given, that is MOST INAPPROPRIATE in the given context.

Mentored is not near to context but farthest as per OA. I feel as Indoctrinate give negative connotation but mentor is positive one that is why it is unfit here.

Just need approval of puys

2. For Diffident / doubtful, as per @prakash_miku: it is somehow related to temperament, diffident temperament is not possible. But why n how?

3. Accommodation / allowance both possible as embargo means ban or prohibition. But why accommodation. Bur is totally out of context then why not this.?

4. Indoctrinate: Now that a generation of children have been indoctrinated against the values of their parents, we are helpless.

As you know INDOCTRINATE = Fill (a person's mind) with a particular ideas or doctines.
So, MENTORED is the correct answer.


WARRANTED
means Justification for an action or a belief. So, when you are putting ideas in someone's mind you provide justification to your subject. So, this cannot be the option. Other 2 options are again synonyms to Indoctrinate.

5. Embargo: Iraq has been under a UN embargo since the early nineties.

Embargo = A prohibition; a ban

As Bur & Prohibition goes with Enbargo.Not sure why Allowance is not the right option as it is farthest in meaning & in context both. :banghead::banghead:
