don’t know. If you don’t have a dictionary handy the best thing to do is to try to
figure out the meaning of the word based on context clues, or the surrounding
words. For each word below re-read the page, find the word and try to
determine the word’s meaning based on the sentence before and the
sentence after it. After, check a dictionary to see if you were correct!
