Most of the women in the orchestra wore conventional black skirts
and white shirts during concerts and had their hair neatly pulled
back. Robin, with her brightly colored clothing and unusual hairstyles, was considered quite eccentric.
What is the meaning of the underlined word eccentric as it is used
in the sentence?
Answer with explanationAnswer: Option A
The passage implies that the other women in the orchestra
were conventional because of the way they dressed and wore
their hair. Because Robin does things differently, she would be
considered unconventional. The other choices, although she may
be joyful, unreliable, and proud, have nothing to do with the
context of this sentence, which is directly addressing her appearance as it compares to the other women in the orchestra.
