Question 1 Report
From the options lettered A-D, choose the option that is most nearly opposite in meaning to the underlined word.
Last Easter was an austere period.
The word "austere" means severe, strict, or without any luxuries or comforts. Therefore, the option that is most nearly opposite in meaning to "austere" is option C, "prosperous," which means successful and wealthy. So if the period was prosperous, it would mean that it was a time of plenty and abundance, the opposite of an austere period which would be characterized by simplicity, restriction and a lack of luxury.
