Example Question #1 : Logic Based Completions In Single Sentences
Yesterday, Paul Williamsonbergfriend was hired as the ________________ financial officer of the company.
This question asks you to select the best answer based on context clues, and a knowledge of the most appropriate idiomatic expression in this case. While "solo" and "primary" could both be considered grammatically correct options, neither of these is a common business expression, whereas "chief financial officer" is a very common job title at companies of a certain size. While "boss" has a vaguely similar meaning to chief, it is to informal to be appropriate for use in this setting.

The disorder and bad publicity brought on by the Williamsonbergfriend scandal really ________________ the company's standing in the industry.
"Disorder and bad publicity" clearly would "hurt" or "damage" a company's standing. "Ameliorated" is a verb meaning to improve, and is thus an antonym of the correct answer. A company's standing is unlikely to be completely "removed" unless that company ceases to exist. "Opened" does not make sense in this context.
