Choose the word which best expresses the meaning of the italicized bold part of the sentence:
Even today many people are guided by abstruse moral values. 

A

irrational

B

obscure

C

impracticable

D

dangerous

Answer

Option B: 'Abstruse' means 'not known or understood by many people'.
'Obscure' means 'not discovered or known about, not easily understood'.
This word means the same as the given italicized word. Hence option B is correct.
Option A: 'Irrational' means 'not logical or reasonable'.
Option C: 'Impracticable' means 'impossible in practice to do or carry out'.
Option D: 'Dangerous' means 'able or likely to cause harm or injury'.
These words do not mean the same as the given word 'abstruse'.
So, options A, C and D are wrong.
