    Just as marriage added something, so did bereavement.

    Hi,

    Just as marriage added something, so did bereavement.
    a) departure b) conflict c) meeting d) deprivation

    I think "a". Am I right?

    Unhappy Re: Just as marriage added something, so did bereavement.

    What is the sentence where you think 'departure' should be used?
    I am not a teacher.

    Even with the help of the dictionary, it is still a weird question IMO.
