Example Question #1 : Distinguish Shades Of Meaning Among Verbs And Adjectives: Ccss.Ela Literacy.L.1.5.D
Select the word that would best replace "huge" in the sentence below:
The bear looks huge from up close.
Huge means to be very big, it's a more intense adjective than just saying "big". "Tiny" and "small" are opposites of "huge", which means neither are correct.
"Large" and "gigantic" could both replace the word "huge" because they both mean big. However, "gigantic" is the best choice because like "huge" it means very big and is a more intence adjective.

"Glare" means to look at someone with anger.
