    questions

    Dear native speakers,

    Would anyone please tell me which item best fills each gap?

    1) Sandy's mid-term grades were passing but hardly .............. of a great year: she had 3 C's and 2 D's.
    a) cacophonous b) portentous c) presumptuous d) perfidious

    2) Peter tried hard to keep his temper, but when Ralph used the ............... words, "You are not a man enough to fight with me," he instinctively came out swinging.
    a) piquant b) esoteric c) improvident d) incendiary

    My answers to these are: 1) d and 2) b
    but I'm not sure about them. I would be grateful if you help me.
    Thanks
