    Default review - opinion and universal - shared

    This is my test question: indicate the word or phrase that is closest in meaning to the underlined
    1. His new work has enjoyed a very good review from critics and readers
    A. viewing B. regard C. opinion D. look
    I think opinion is the most suitable but I wonder that if review is right? I think it should be view instead.
    By the way, are viewing and view
    the same meaning?
    2. Such problems as haste and inexperience are a universal feature of youth
    A. marked B.separated C. shared D. hidden
    The answer is shared. I don't see it in the dictionary. Do you think this is right? Do the natives use it?
    Thank you for all your answer (I'm not native, so if I have any mistake, plz fix it)

    Do you mean 'viewing'? 'Review' is the original word.'
    I think it should be view instead.

    The right answer is 'opinion'. It might have been viewed by a thousand critics, meaning that it had a good viewing. It have been hated by all of them, meaning that it got a bad review (opinion) despite a good viewing.


    By the way, are viewing and view the same meaning?
    No.

    2. Such problems as haste and inexperience are a universal feature of youth
    A. marked B.separated C. shared D. hidden

    'Shared' doesn't mean 'universal', but it's the closest term of the four.
    You might not find 'shared' in the dictionary. You must look up the base word 'share' (verb).
