<p>Cathedrals usually take decades, even centuries, to complete; thus, no one expected the National Cathedral to be built with _______.</p>

<p>A) dispatch
B) presumption
C) durability
D) deliberation
E) reverence</p>

<p>What do you think the answer is and why?</p>

<p>i would say dispatch because if I were to chose a word I would say hurry and dispatch is the closest in meaning. Tell me if it is right</p>

<p>On instinct during an actual test, I would say dispatch. But looking at it now, none of the answers really make much sense.</p>

<p>dispatch makes sense although it is an akward choice</p>

<p>Dispatch is the most likely answer.</p>

<p>I was thinking durability, but dispatch makes more sense.</p>

<p>one of my sat vocab cards is dispatch and the definition is promptness, therefore it is the correct answer</p>

<p>Dispatch</p>

<p>100% sure</p>

<p>Correct guys.. thank you</p>

<p>I wasn't previously familiar with that definition of dispatch.</p>

<p>The art of Milet Andrejevic often represents us with an idyllic vision that is subtly ________ by more sinister elements, as if suggesting the _________ beauty of our surroundings.</p>

<p>A) enhanced..pristine
B) invaded..flawed
C) altered..unmarred
D) redeemed..hallowed
E) devastated..bland</p>

<p>Please explain the answer and why. Thanks in advance.</p>

<p>I'm leaning toward B.</p>

<p>If you add sinister elements to something peaceful, then that object isn't perfect.</p>

<p>Others just don't seem to match.</p>

<p>i saw that questions before... i think i got it wrong last time</p>

<p>im going with B as well.</p>

<p>Any in depth explanations?
Also..
Writing:</p>

<p>Marie and Pierre Curie discovered radium but refused to patent the process they USED NOR OTHERWIDE PROFITING from the commercial exploitation of radium.</p>

<p>A) USED NOR OTHERWISE PROFITING
B) HAD USED NOR OTHERWISE DID THEY PROFIT
C) HAVE USED OR OTHERWISE TO HAVE PROFITED
D) USED OR OTHERWIDE PROFITED
E) HAD USED OR OTHERWISE TO PROFIT</p>

<p>I do not understand this question. Anyone?</p>

<p>D.</p>

<p>I hope I'm right.</p>

<p>i dont get the last part of the sentence as wel...</p>

<p>the answer is E. Trust me...i got an 800 CR and 800 W.</p>

<p>Anyway, the reason is, you need to have both verbs be infinitives: They refused TO PATENT (the process they used) or otherwise TO PROFIT</p>

<p>if you take out all the extraneous words, you see it's very simple: they refused to patent or to profit</p>

<p>I agree with answer (e)</p>
