    Re: smart dresser

    No (but see my disclaimer below). A dresser is a piece of furniture. In the phrase "He's a smart dresser", it means "He wears smart clothes". I believe that the question is calling for answer D. It suggests that you are the person going for the job interview so it asks what colour you would choose to wear in order for your outfit to be considered smart.

    Here's the disclaimer: If it is a third party going for the job interview, you are being asked to choose their clothes for them and you know that they generally dress smartly, we could say "What colours would you choose for a smart dresser for a job interview?" In that question, you are not the smart dresser being discussed.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
