Q.

The formerly ____ waters of the lake have been polluted so that the fish are no longer visible from the surface.

 A.

muddy

 B.

tranquil

 C.

stagnant

 D.

pellucid

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

The word ‘formerly’ indicates that once things were different.
So, since now the waters are polluted so that fish cannot be seen, then formerly they must have been unpolluted and clear (pellucid).

(tranquil = peaceful; stagnant = not moving; pellucid = transparently clear; rancid = stale)
