Question 88

The following question has a paragraph with one italicized word that does not make sense. Choose the most appropriate replacement for that word from the options given below the paragraph.

Women squat, heads covered, beside huge piles of limp fodder and $$blunk$$ oil lamps, and just about all the cows in the three towns converge upon this spot. Sinners, supplicants and yes, even scallywags hand over a few coins for a crack at redemption and a handful of grass.


If you carefully observe the passage, the ideas described are sad and pale. Hence sputtering is the most appropriate word as "Sputtering" means the light of flame which is dying out. Rest of the options are synonym to bright and shiny.
