    She was happy to have the idea of generosity and dignity.

    Hi,

    She was happy to have the idea of generosity and dignity.
    a) respect b) insult c) awareness d) greatness

    I think the correct option is "a". Am I right?

    Re: She was happy to have the idea of generosity and dignity.

    What does it mean to have the idea of generosity and dignity? Neither of these things are usually considered ideas; they're qualities/characteristics/features/virtues of a person.
    Also, having dignity and having respect are two different things, although there's no better answer given.

    You will have noticed that in both your posts like this, we had to ask you to clarify what you're actually asking. If you post any more of these, please make sure you include the question or instruction, such as "Which of the four options comes closest to the meaning of the underlined word?"

    Where are you getting these exercises from?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
