Explanation


The words that fill the blank must fit with the idea that Rainer’s film has some feminist implications, but that those are limited compared with her other activities. From the
six words offered as answer choices, the pair “antedated” and “preceded” and the pair “portrayed” and “represented” each produce sentences that are similar in meaning.
However, only “antedated” and “preceded” make sense in the context of the sentence: Rainer’s 1974 film exhibits feminist themes in a limited way because it came before she
became active in feminist politics.
Thus, the correct answer is antedated (Choice A) and preceded (Choice D).

"though" in this context to indicate that the information given is true, but might appear to contain a conflict.

Take this sentence: "Though the temperature was near freezing, Sam wasn't wearing a coat." There's an apparent conflict in the facts given, since we would expect Sam to be wearing a coat in freezing temperatures.


If Yvonne went to the trouble of making a feminist movie in 1974, we would expect her to be actively involved in the feminist movement at that time. But the "though" indicates an apparent conflict in the facts given. The only word that provides an apparent conflict is "antedated."

The writer is making the point that even though the film-maker is now known for a feminist agenda, this film predated that agenda.

Read the sentence and look for contextual information.... hmmm, not a whole lot of information to work with.

So, if we can't predict the kind of word(s) that might fit in the blank, we should look for word pairs that are alike in meaning.

A (antedated) and D (preceded) have similar meanings.
Also, C (portrayed) and F (represented) have similar meanings.

When we examine C and F, we see that they don't match up with the KEYWORD "Though"
If the sentence were Feminist in its implications, Yvonne Rainer’s 1974 film __________ the filmmaker’s active involvement in feminist politics, then C and F would be perfect.
However, the first word, "Though" suggests that the film was CONTRARY to the given information.
ELIMINATE C and F


What about A and D?
These words work perfectly with the original sentence.
EVEN THOUGH it has feminist implications, the film was made BEFORE (preceded/antedated) the filmmaker became active in feminist politics.
PERFECT!!

Answer: A, D

Cheers,
Brent

Though feminist in its implications, Yvonne Rainer’s 1974 film __________ the filmmaker’s active involvement in feminist politics.

The sentence has a time clue, when it talks about 1974 film.

We have the contrast word though. It contrasts two ideas in the sentence:

1. Yvonne Rainer's 1974 film had feminist implications.
2. _________ the filmmaker's active involvement in feminist politics.

The only way 2 can be made to contrast with 1, is to ensure that the filmmaker's active involvement in feminist politics was after she made the feminist film in 1974.

Or Yvonne Rainer's 1974 film was made before the filmmaker's active involvement in feminist politics.

The choice words are antedated and preceded.

Usage of though indicates --> turn in the event or some change in though

C,F --> out as the words does not indicate contrast.
B,E --> they do not have any synonym pair

Hence, AD is the Answer.
