OPTIONS

2)  BBBAB
3)  AAAAB
4)  BAABA
5)  BBBAA

Solution


“Waiver” means the act of relinquishing. “Waver” is a person who waves.
“Weary” means tired; “wary” means cautious. These words are not interchangeable.
Traditionalists insist that “nauseous” should be used to describe something that makes you want to throw up: something nauseating. When one feels like vomiting, one is “nauseated”.
“Lightening” means become lighter or less dark; brighten. “Lightning” goes with thunder.
One of the meanings of “Materiel” is arms, ammunition, and equipment in general.
In the above context, enemy “material” has no meaning.
Hence, the correct answer is option 5.
