Promulgate means to make known by open declaration; publish; proclaim formally or put into operation (a law for instance).

Hope this helps.

But promulgate is not even an option. The only options are :
A) Displayed
B) Disseminated
C) Proclaimed
D) Concealed
E) Secreted

promulgate is used in the passage, question asks us to give synonym for that word and here the synonym-- that goes with the context of the statement written in the passage-- is proclaim.

Yes. True.

But the problem with disseminated is that it is completely out of context.

Ask if something is unclear to you.

Question 3. Option A states that the painter was weakening(subverts) the new convention(novelistic convention). But the passage states that he brought a change that freed the painters of that time.

Then how can Option A be correct?

I think that disseminate is not a good choice here even though it is a close synonym to promulgate because it means that to spread the idea but the author does not say anything about spreading the idea the painter has just proclaimed in this and then the idea has become popular.

I think the third is NOt the most difficult question on earth but is a bit tricky.

Usually you must read SUPER carefully. However, is such questions like this one which is basically a parallel reasoning question, you MUST read SUPER^2 carefully raised to the power of two

His wor was strikingly original. That means he did something of a groundbreaking


A) An avant-garde writer who subverts novelistic conventions
this could be an option

B) A machinist who tinkers and improves his invention
improves is NOT groundbreaking
C) A watercolor painter who paints in the same style as his peers
same style ....not groundbreaking

D) A scientist who comes up with a unified theory of several discordant scientific ideas
unified does not mean groundbreaking.. could also be or not

E) A seamstress who makes a ball gown using several different types of fabric

this is not original

A is the answer

Hope now is more clear
