A thing is “nauseous” if it makes one sick to the stomach; the unfortunate victim of this malaise is “nauseated.” The common misuse of “nauseous” can be illustrated with the following sentence: “When he sits too long, turns his head too abruptly, or walks any distance, he gets dizzy, loses balance, and becomes nauseous.” He doesn’t become nauseous unless he turns other people’s stomachs; he becomes nauseated. A person who is nauseated is no more nauseous than a person who has been poisoned is poisonous.
Based on the passage above, which phrase does NOT provide a logical completion to the following sentence?

A person who is nauseated is no more nauseous than a person who has been______

(A) murdered is murderous

(B) corrupted is corruptible

(C) awed is awesome

(D) irritated is irritating

(E) scared is scary

By looking at phrase "a person who has been poisoned is poisonous" we clearly know that the two opposite entities have to be present in logical clause

(A) murdered is murderous - Logical Opposite

(B) corrupted is corruptible - Correct Answer!!This is the odd one out and two are synonymous rather than being opposites

(C) awed is awesome- Logical Opposite

(D) irritated is irritating- Logical Opposite

(E) scared is scary- Logical Opposite
