Can you help me with the sentence check 2 Chapter 17 and 18 in the improving vocabulary skill workbook?
Nope. We don't have your workbook -- or any other text books.
If you post some of the sentences and your word choices, along with your answers, we'll be glad to help you then.
word choices: congenial, prone, flippant,rapport, impasse, rationale, perception, relentless, prompt, reprisal
1.Because Wade is so congenial and easy to talk to, we established a warm rapport the first day we met.

4. My perception of the situation is that talks between the factory management and union officials reached a(n) prone because neither side would compromise on salary increase and health benefits. In such situations, flexibility is a prerequisite to progress.
5. Alma could put up with occasional kidding, but her brother's teasing was often relentless, going on for weeks at a time. Sick of it all she finally planned a reprisal that would embarrass him in front of his friends.
