What word fits better in the following sentence:
To the __________ of many taxpayers, some citizens seem to cheat the government with impunity.

A)perfunctory
B)preverse

  • English - ,

    Neither word fits. There is no such word as "preverse". "Perfunctory" is an adjective, but the blank must be filled with a noun.

    Are there no other choices? Words like annoyance, ire, disgust, surprise and shock would fit, and each would convey a different meaning.
