Q.

This biography we are given a glimpse of the young man ____ pursuing the path of the poet despite ____ and rejection slips.

 A.

doggedly - disappointment 

 B.

tirelessly - encouragement 

 C.

sporadically - awards 

 D.

successfully – acclaim

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(A) is correct

‘despite’ indicates something contrary. So, despite the rejection slips he pursues his path doggedly or tirelessly. But since the ‘and’ links similar things he is getting disappointment along with the rejection slips, not encouragement.

(doggedly = never giving up; sporadically = on and off; acclaim = praise)
