Please check my answers!
Vibrant is MOST LIKELY to be used to describe
a. an accident
b. a color
c. or an idea
(I think it's b but I'm not sure)
If on June 1, a father gives his son an allowance increase that is two months retroactive, then the son will
a. start receiving the increase in August
b. receive extra money for the previous months of April and May
c. get raise in June, but not July or August
(I think it is a but I'm not sure if I am right)
A good example of a reprieve is
a. exchanging defective merchandise for a refund
b. a soaking rain after a long drought
c. successfully completing a difficult task
( I have absolutely no idea on this one! I'm guessing b?)

I agree with your first answer.
Your second answer is wrong. Please look up retroactive and reprieve in a dictionary.

Ok, for the second question, I think it is b now, am I right?
For the third, I know the definition is a postponement or cancellation of punishment; to bring relief to; a respite; a delay. So, now I'm kind of thinking the answer is c.

You're right now about the second one.
The third one is tricky -- and I didn't see it at first.
I believe that in this sentence, reprieve means to be saved from the very dry weather. During a drought, plants dry up or grow very slowly. When the rains come, the plants are given a retrieve and many come back to life.

That makes a lot of sense! I understand completely now! Thank you!
