  2. I can't believe you actually looked these words up in a dictionary. You have one answer correct -- # 10.

    For number 1, a carefully prepared (meticulous) lecture, shouldn't be hard to follow. I told you in another post that you should use the word that means "rambling, moving from subject to subject."

    Please go back and check the previous post for the hints I gave you for numbers 1 - 5.

    And # 11 is especially ridiculous. Amorous means "loving." How can crimes against the state be considered loving?
