#45 , QUESTIONS 441 TO 450, Boy friends

Boy friends are both a source of bliss and misery. Initially they may be extremely accommodative and later turn out to be promiscuous. To get an ex boy friend back is becoming a preoccupation of many-a-woman, now-a-days. A true lover should never abandon his beloved. If he choses to be fickle and merciless, it will be better to throw him in a dust-bin, after salvaging whatever remedies and redressals could be obtained through legal proceedings.

Today's multiple choice question test deals with vocabulary associated with boyfriends.
