QuestionIn this question, choose the option that is nearest in meaning to the word(s) or phrase(s) underlined.
In my view, the play didn't come off
The correct answer is A.
This question is asking you to choose the option that has a similar meaning to the underlined phrase "come off" in the sentence "In my view, the play didn't come off". The options are A, B, C and D. Option A is "succeed", option B is "fail", option C is "attract applause" and option D is "take place".
The correct answer is option A, "succeed", which means that the play didn't go well or wasn't successful. The phrase "come off" is another way of saying the same thing. Option B, "fail", is the opposite of succeed and has a different meaning from "come off". Option C, "attract applause", is not the same as "come off" either because it refers to getting applause, not success or failure. Option D, "take place", is also different from "come off" because it means that the play happened, not whether it was successful or not.
