The correct answers are B, E, G.See the question again >
While many psychoanalysts tend to (i)______ Sigmund Freud and adhere to his ideas regarding the ego, id, and superego in behavioral analysis, only Carl Jung's idea of the collective consciousness, which expands upon the ideas of Freud, can explain how (ii)_________ individual can identify with a group and (iii) _________ group awareness.
|Blank (i)||Blank (ii)||Blank (iii)|
In this sentence, the straight-ahead road sign "and" connects the ideas in the first clause. In psychoanalysts adhere to Freud's ideas in practice, then they likely think highly of him. For the first blank, then, we want a word that means "respect" or something similar. Choice (B) venerate means "respect" or "hold in high regard", so this choice matches our prediction and is correct. Choice (A) emulate, or "imitate," is not suggested by the sentence, which only states that psychoanalysts adhere to Freud's theories, not that they actually try to act like Freud. Therefore, choice (A) is incorrect. Choice (C) impugn means "criticize," which does not fit the context of the sentence, so it is also incorrect.
The second part of the sentence contrasts individual and collective consciousness, and so we can predict that the second missing word will relate to the idea of individuality. Therefore, (E) an autonomous, meaning "independent," is the correct choice. Choice (D) a redoubtable means "formidable" or "worthy of respect," which is incorrect because the clues in the sentence do not indicate whether the individual is or is no worthy of respect. Choice (F) amorphous means "formless", and is incorrect because it does not fit the context.
Let's move on to the third blank. The straight-ahead road sign "and" again connects the ideas in the final part of the sentence. If an individual identifies with a group, then he or she "demonstrates" group awareness. Choice (G) exhibit means "demonstrate" and matches our prediction, so this is the correct choice. Choice (H) interpolate means "inject into the midst of." And choice (I) dispute means "question," neither of which fits the context of the sentence, so both are incorrect.
Choices (B), (E), and (G) are correct.
