Choose a word to replace the italicized word in the sentence. All of the possible choices in the sentence have similar definitions, but the correct answer will have a connotation that best suits the context. For example, the words "delete," "destroy," and "obliterate" all mean "to remove or wipe out," but no one would ever say, "I destroyed the name from the document." The correct choice will be the word that has the best specific meaning and does not render the sentence awkward in tone or content. When choices seem close, look for a clue in the context that makes one choice better than the other:
There was no question that Doug had arrogated the last ice cream sandwich from the breakroom freezer, even though I had verbally claimed it this morning.
