Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Prudery could be defined by "propriety" or "cautiousness", so if it is actually draw(ing) attention to a vice, it's backfiring. Prudery is supposed to condemn, repress, or obviate. (A, C, or D)
"The very act (of being prude)______ what is hidden." Since prudery is (in this example) ineffective, it must show what it is trying to hide or mask. The only answers that work here are dramatize, foster, and conceal. (C, D, and E)
So C and D both seem like okay guesses. If I had to pick, I'd say C, since "dramatizes" is a much stronger word than "fosters"
