Select the most appropriate option to fill in the blank.
The inhumane stranger did not even pay ______ to the beggar on the street and kicked him out his way.
Correct Answer : a ) heedExplanation :
Heed means careful attention.
Trouble means difficulty or problems.
Sympathize means feel or express sympathy.
Likely means such as well might happen or be true; probable.
In the given filler, it has been expressed that the stranger did not pay any attention to the beggar and kicked him recklessly.
To express the meaning of attention, we will use ‘heed’.
We could have used ‘sympathy’ as it is in noun form, but the verb form ‘sympathize’ does not fit in the sentence structure.
Hence, (a) is the correct answer.
