    Another verbal question from a GRE practice book

    Hi, everyone.
    I have asked a similar question before, and I'm grateful to all of you who were interested in and answered my question.
    Here, I'd like to ask another question.
    Code:
    Choose the word or phrase that is most nearly the same in meaning as the word in capital letters.
    9. IMPETUOUS
    (A) controlled
    (B) hasty
    (C) vigorous
    (D) defamatory
    (E) vehement
    My answer is B, but the book's answer is E.
    Which answer do you think is the correct one?
    Thank you very much.
    PS: This is definitely not a homework assignment.
    Please notify me of any mistakes in my posts. It is much appreciated.

    I am not a teacher.

    I would say (B) too.

    Wasn't your previous post something similar to this? I think you should get another book.

    In my opinion, the answer key is wrong.
