Explanation

Although his reputation was bad, disregarding what was around him, after all he was gentle.

C and E win.

Does 'disregarded' fit the bill in terms of grammar?

Honestly ?? no.

After disregarding you should have some complement object or else.

it is a verb and in this case, it is pending.

I also thought so. That is why I disregarded (pun intended) that option. But that, unfortunately, cost me the right answer.

Although he has long had a reputation for (i) ____________ , his behavior toward his coworkers has always been (ii) ____________, suggesting he may not be as insolent as people generally think.




Blank (i) Blank (ii)
(A) inscrutability (D) brazen
(B) venality (E) courteous
(C) disregarded (F) predictable


the phrase "suggesting he may not be as insolent..." suggests that the word for the second blank has to be the opposite of insolent and hence, courteous is the best choice. The sentence begins by trying to counteract his long held reputation for something. If he was in reality very courteous towards his workers , then his reputation should have been the exact opposite - disregarded impudence seems to be only meaningful but grammatical bad choice.

Edit: I have made changes to reflect the new choice word for Choice C (disregarded has been replaced by impudence).

Sorry guys,

C as the answer is impudence

I do not know how that word - disregarded - was there. Really sorry :(

I took it straight from the test powerprep.

Thank you
