In the midst of so many evasive

In the midst of so many evasive comments, this forthright statement, whatever its intrinsic merit, plainly stands out as. a paradigm, a misnomer, a profundity, an inaccuracy, an anomaly

2 Explanations


Dear teacher, why does the forthright statement is typical? maybe it is a model? Therefore, I choose A , a paradigm. If the answer is anomaly, how does this sentence represent a negative attitude? Thank you for your help!

Hi there :) This sentence is actually saying that the forthright or direct comment is not typical and stands out among the other more evasive or indirect comments. So, we want a word to describe that the forthright comment is not like the rest, that the forthright comment is an anomaly. This does not necessarily represent a negative attitude but rather describes the stark contrast between the evasive comments and the lonely forthright comment.

Hope this helps :)
