Tantra paintings from India are not only beautiful but ——-: in addition to their aesthetic value, they are used to facilitate meditation.
If you think the original phrasing produces a better sentence than any of the alternatives, select choice A. (Basically, which other word fits in better other than involve?)
Reading maps involve several abilities, including the ability to locate places, to ascertain directions, to measure distances, and to interpret the mapmaker’s symbols.
C. will involve
D. has involved
E. have involved
1.) The correct answer is 48 over 7 (not listed). This is because if you need 7 gallons of fuel to plow 3 acres, then the MAXIMUM acrage you can plow on a full tank is a scale-up from 3 to 16/7 (the ratio of full tank fuel to 7 gallons) times the corresponding acrage at 7 gallons
so acrage = (16/7) (3) = 48/7
2.) Either B (valuable) or E (functional) should do, but I am leaning towards E (functional).
3.) B. “involves”. Present tense verb for “Reading” since “Reading” is also present tense
Hope that helps
