A) Soldiers in an open field are exposed to the enemy’s gunfire. B) Foolish actions expose a person to the sneers* of others. C) The article exposed the vital* document* as a forgery.

B) Upon hearing the news of the defeat, the football coach promptly* resigned. C) Upon examining the injury, the chiropractor* told Jim he had better resign himself to a week in bed.

B) Each time they amended the plan, they made it worse. C) Rather than amend the club’s constitution again, let us discard* it and start afresh.
And the last word for this lesson is “ballot”.

A) Clyde, confident* of victory, dropped his ballot into the box. B) After we counted the ballots a second time, Leo’s victory was confirmed.
