First, let's look at the definitions of reactionary and progress and see how they are related.
From Dictionary.com:
REACTIONARY: "1. of, pertaining to, marked by, or favoring reaction, esp. extreme conservatism or rightism in politics; opposing political or social change.
–noun 2. a reactionary person."
PROGRESS: "1. a movement toward a goal or to a further or higher stage"

A reactionary, then, is a person who opposes change and progress. A laggard doesn't necessarily oppose iniquity, so d. can't be the correct answer. Please check the definitions of the other pairs of words to find an example of the first word opposing the second word.



Decorum : Conventional::
a. innovation : variegated
b. depravity : surreptitious
c. subjugation : desultory
d. hedonism : self-indulgent
e. vituperation : motley
b?
Decorum is an example of conventional behavior. But -- depravity is not an example of surreptitious behavior -- so b is not correct. Please check the definitions of these words to find the pair in which the first word is an example of the behavior depicted in the second word.

Monotonous : Respite::
a. bountiful : brevity
b. recalcitrant : resistance
c. myopic : dogma
d. serious : levity
e. nefarious : malice
d?
Please check the definitions to find the pair that shows the first word as an example of the second word.

Euphemism : Substitution::
a. lament : promotion
b. rebuff : connection
c. equivoocation : avoidance
d. hyperbole : circumvention
e. vacillation : replacement
a?
