Example Question #1 : Revise
Looking at the sentence provided, select the word that could replace the underlined word.
Seeing my older sister get off of the school bus made me so happy because I could not wait to play with her.
We are looking for a word to replace "happy" so we want to look for a word that has the same, or close to the same, meaning. "Hungry", "tired", and "sad" do not mean the same thing as "happy" and these words do not make sense in our sentence. The best replacement for the word "happy" is "excited" because they are close to meaning the same thing.
