answer : A

the text is intended to test your understanding of which word is correct in a particular context


it is important  to remember that whatever choice you make  you answer  must be correct  in both
meaning and structure

A  mind  B excuse C object  D  dislike

all these choise seem to express a similar meaning  tha of "not liking" but only one i s structurally correct
choice C object is correct because  it is followed  by  to
mind dislike an excuse  cannot be followed by to

example 2

A tame  B friendly   C beautiful  D fierce

all the choice are adjective  and would be appropriate from a sructural poin of view  but   A  B  C  cannot be correct (why  should you be careful  of such charming guard dogs  D fierce  is there fore the right answer 

example 3

However hard you tried he never ........ to swim more than 100 metres

A succeeded  B failed   C  realised   D  managed

A succeeded   has the right kind of meaning  but is wrong structurally because  succeede shoud be followed by  in

B failed   is right structurally  but has the wrong meaning

C realised  is wrong in meaning and structure

D managed   is correct in meaning and structure  ( managed is followed by TO )
