Q.

Virginia Woolf _______ conventional notions of truth: in her words, one cannot receive from any lecture "a nugget of pure truth" to wrap up between the pages of one's notebook and keep on the mantelpiece forever.

 A.

Anticipates

 B.

Articulates

 C.

Neglects

 D.

Mocks

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

The second clause presents an example of literary mockery. The abstract idea of preserving a nugget of pure teeth is appealing; the concrete example of setting it up on the mantel makes fun of the whole idea.
