Quote:
The word “irony” is an outcome of events contrary to what was, or might have been, expected. Choice (A) is not ironic—the medical term pablum means a passively absorbed nutrition, and babies receive the baby food Pablum in a passive way. Choices (B), (C), and (E) may be true, but also do not fit the definition of ironic. Answer (D) is indeed ironic—the word now means nearly the opposite of what was originally intended. Only answer choice (D) presents this kind of ironic twist.
