Anne was resolute about following a spiritual path, and consequently, she made a focused effort to divorce herself from ________ concerns.

  • plebeian
  • secular
  • pious
  • nebulous
  • temporal
  • nondescript

[Reveal] Spoiler: OA
B and E


[Reveal] Spoiler: OE
In this sentence, the word “consequently” is a straight-ahead road sign indicating that the second part of the sentence follows logically from the first. Because Anne is concerned with spiritual matters, she would logically want to divorce herself from worldly concerns. We can predict that the missing word will have a meaning similar to “worldly.” Answer choices (B) secular and (E) temporal both mean “worldly” or “material” and connote a lack of spiritual interest, so both these choices match our prediction and are correct.

Choice (A) plebeian means “working-class,” which does not fit the context because there is no necessary contrast between spiritual concerns and a working-class lifestyle. Hence, choice (A) is incorrect. Choice (C) pious means “devout,” which connotes a strong interest in spiritual concerns and is thus the opposite of our prediction, so this choice is incorrect. Choices (D) nebulous and (F) nondescript both mean “vague or hard to describe,” and do not contrast with the idea of a “spiritual path;” thus, these choices are incorrect.

Choices (B) and (E) are the correct answers.

plebeian
secular

Because Anne wants to follow spiritual path, so she has to give up non spiritual ways

Secular and Temporal are the answers as the opposites of spiritual.
