A good way to approach these essential type questions is to use the following sentence: "A ______ could not exist without ______.". Find the word that names a necessary and essential part of the word in the question.


A. love
B. church
C. ring
D. marriage

Answer & Explanation:

Answer: Option D

Explanation: A wedding results in a joining, or a marriage, so choice d is the essential element. Love (choice a) usually precedes a wedding, but it is not essential. A wedding may take place anywhere, so a church (choice b) is not required. A ring (choice c) is often used in a wedding, but it is not necessary.
