#### Since each person is ___________, collaborating as a team can bring __________ results.

Correct! Wrong!

Since every person is unique (special), collaborating (working together) as a team can bring superior (better) results.
The first pair of words is not a good match because "talent" is a noun while the sentence calls for an adjective describing the person.
The third pair is incorrect because all people are not identical.
The fourth pair is incorrect because the adjective "continuous" does not make sense in the context of the sentence.
The last pair is incorrect because the word "diversity" is a noun and not an adjective.

#### The boy was filled with _______ when he saw that his sister broke his favorite toy.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
According to the sentence, the boy’s sister broke his favorite toy. We can therefore assume that the boy was filled with a negative emotion. Wrath is a negative emotion, and it fits the context of the sentence.
In case we do not know the word wrath, we can eliminate joy and ambition, which are both positive words. Confusion is not necessarily a negative emotion and does not fit the sentence as much as wrath. Doubt means uncertainty, which can also be marked as incorrect.

#### Assumptions: Jackson takes the subway to work every day. Every Tuesday, he buys a sandwich from a vending machine. Jackson hates the macaroni salad sandwich. Conclusion: The vending machine is located in the subway. If the assumptions are true, then the conclusion is:

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The conclusion "The vending machine is located in the subway" cannot be determined based on the provided assumptions. While it's clear that Jackson takes the subway to work every day and buys a sandwich from a vending machine every Tuesday, there's no direct connection between these facts and the location of the vending machine. It's possible that the vending machine is located in the subway, but it's also possible that it's located elsewhere.

#### Most parents thought it was an __________ decision to make the field trip part of the yearly routine, as they valued the trip as exciting and empowering for the children.

Correct! Wrong!

Explanation:
The correct answer is adequate, which means satisfactory or acceptable.
Since according to the second part of the sentence the parents demonstrated positive appreciation of the trip’s contribution to their children, we expect a positive adjective to describe the decision to make the field trip part of the yearly routine. Only two words answer this notion. ‘Remarkable’ might have been the best choice, as it has a very positive tone, comparable to the positive appreciation of the trip as “empowering” and “exciting”. Nonetheless, the word ‘remarkable’ cannot be placed after the determiner “an”, thus ‘adequate’ is the next best choice to complete the sentence and the correct answer.
