ANSWERS:
1. All your suggestions will be carefully __________ before we come to a decision.
a) conserved – ‘To conserve’ means to keep something in its original condition. Try again.
b) understood – The word you need here means think carefully and for some time, which doesn’t mean the same thing as ‘understood’. Try again.
c) considered – This is the correct answer. It means think carefully and for some time.
d) undermined – ‘To undermine’ means to weaken or destroy something gradually, so is not the right answer here. Try again.

3. After careful __________ on the pros and cons, she decided to go ahead and do it.
a) thinking – ‘Thinking’ is followed by ‘about’. You need a different verb with ‘on’. Try again.
b) dreaming – ‘Dreaming’ is followed by ‘about’. Usually the kind of thinking we do while we are
day dreaming is not considered to be careful or deep. You need a different verb with ‘on’.
c) examination – ‘Examination’ is followed by ‘of’, not ‘on’. You need a different verb with ‘on’.
Try again.

6. Don’t __________ with that, it’s just not worth thinking about.
