- Published on 06 Jan 17

a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

ANSWER: 2
 
Replace 'though' with 'but'. Two show contrasting qualities, 'but' is used.

e.g. She is poor but honest.

The correct sentence should be: The programme was almost fixed but it was his negligence that led to disappointment.

But/Yet are used interchangeably in many cases.

e.g. It is strange 'yet/but' it is true.
