Have you looked up "laud" in a dictionary?
Student or Learner
For laud ,which is the word which is near to its meaning ?
Dear sir ,I know it should be "praise" but at a place the right answer was acknowledge.However I know that acknowledge is also a synonym (however weak) so I want to know that is there any rule that we should write a far synonym instead of a direct meaning of the word or it is just that acknowledge is the wrong answer ?
Please be elaborate if acknowledge is the correct answer.
In which "place" does it say that acknowledge is the right answer?
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Dear sir ,It is in a previous year question paper preparation book related to an examination being held in India.
The objective type question had 4 answers and the answer was acknowledge. It may be a printing mistake but I want to discuss it with you people as for an instant I thought that synonym should be a word that is similar to the meaning and for praise being a direct meaning of laud should not be considered as synonym.
So I posted this question to confirm that is there anything that a synonym should be similar and not exactly same to the word being asked ?
There is no need to call anyone "Sir", here, particularly the women, one of whom you just addressed.
There is no doubt that "laud" includes acknowledgement, but "praise" is a much better definition.
I am very much sorry. It was difficult to apprehend her gender by just having a look at her profile picture or the little information that is supplied in the side that consists of join date and number of posts only.
