Question 1 (iv)
Select the option that conveys the opposite of ‘negligible’, from words used in paragraph two.
From the paragraph:
Ghost nets entangle sea turtles, dolphins and porpoises, birds, sharks, seals and more, apart from catching fish. The nets keep animals from moving freely, cause injuries and keep mammals and birds from rising to the surface for air. Since hundreds of animals can be caught in a single net, this threat is monumental . The ghost nets harm coral reefs too—breaking corals, exposing them to disease and even blocking the reefs from needed sunlight.
Checking the options:
- A. Unimpressive - means ordinary or not special
- B. Monumental - This is correct
- C. Exposing - means to show something which is hidden
- D. Threat - means danger or hazard
So, the correct answer is option B.
