analogies

I need help with this analogy.

person:unimportant::idea:

sporadic, reticent, trivial, quiescent, or raucous

I have no idea what the answer is!! Help me!!

trivial. Now why, that is important. Hint: what do unimportant and trivial have to do with each other that the other choices do not have?

thanks 4 the help

it's part of my spelling assignment and a lot of the others are really hard. not even my english teacher knows all of them.
