Sentence Improvement - English (MCQ) for Bank, MBA, CAT, MAT, GMAT, SSC for Q. 21052

Q.  Select the appropriate word which makes the sentence meaningful.

The thief after interrogation ________ his mistake

- Published on 19 Apr 16

a. accepted
b. excepted

ANSWER: accepted
The word accept means 'to receive' and except is a preposition which means 'excluding' or 'leaving out'
'Accept' and 'Except' are antonyms. Hence, these words should be carefully used to make the sentence meaningful.

For example:
1) Except my mother, everyone is present.
2) I accept this award on behalf of my friend
