2. 2. PSSA Word of the Day Process of Elimination Eliminating Incorrect Answers ✪ If you cannot quickly decide on the best answer to a multiple-choice question, you can use the process of elimination to help find the answer. ✪ In this process, you identify choices that are incorrect, often in several stages. ✪ Eliminating incorrect answers makes it much easier to choose the best answer. The process of elimination involves these steps. Step 1: Identify answer choices that are obviously wrong. Put a small x by these choices. Step 2: Reread the passage and the question carefully. Step 3: Choose between the answer choices that remain.
3. 3. PSSA Word of the Day Process of Elimination Bob sat down at the table and put his head in his hands. He had a disgruntled look on his face. “I can’t believe that Mr. Hardison chose Alison Miller to represent the school of the Model United Nations this year. I’m the one he should have chosen.” What does the word disgruntled mean in this passage? A. delicious C. pleased B. dissatisfied D. infuriated Step 1: Eliminate the answer choices that are obviously wrong. Answer choice (A) makes no sense—what would it mean to have “a delicious look” on one’s face? This is nonsense, so it cannot be the correct answer. Answer choice (C) is also incorrect. From the context you can tell that Maria is NOT pleased.

What does the word disgruntled mean in this passage? A. delicious C. pleased B. dissatisfied D. infuriated Step 2: Go back and read the paragraph again carefully.

What does the word disgruntled mean in this passage? A. delicious C. pleased B. dissatisfied D. infuriated Step 3: You have eliminated choices (A) and (C). Of the remaining answer choices, which one seems to be the best answers? Someone who is infuriated is extremely angry. Does Bob show signs of extreme anger? No. He is not yelling.
