Example Question #51 : Synonyms: Nouns For Nonliving Things

Select the answer choice that is closest in meaning to the word in capital letters.

GARMENT

Possible Answers:

Uniform

Position

Suit

Attire

Storage

Correct answer:

Attire

Explanation:

Maybe you have heard your siblings or parents talking about "garment bags." These are bags that are used for carrying clothes. (For instance, a uniform might be carried in a garment bag when going to a football game.) The word "garment" is not about any particular kind of clothing that might be put into such a bag. Instead, the word "garment" simply means clothing item. Thus, the best option provided here is "attire." Perhaps you have heard someone say something like, "He changed his attire so he could look nicer for the dance." "Attire" is a synonym for "clothes." (It does sometimes mean "nice clothes", but it is also fine for simple "clothes" as well!)
