Question: 64

1. The word filaments probably means

  • A. large chunks.
  • B. waves.
  • C. files.
  • D. dust.

Correct Answer: E


The correct answer is (E). The dictionary definition of filament is "a very slender thread or fiber." You do not need to know the dictionary definition to answer this question. Wasps could not possibly be handling large chunks or files. The word filaments in the selection appears in the plural. If the meaning were "dust," the word would be in the singular.
