Right. I am suggesting the trend might not be a trend. Fixed the link, thank you!

Unfortunately, people who know what they are doing do not agree. NYT uses both forms as in Marine Corps’ Infantry Officer Course, nytimes.com/2012/07/09/us/…

I second the advice by @DaveMagner. My comments speak only to the semantics (and not to any supposed health benefits of butter, knives, or black eyes).

comment what's the difference between “apparent”, “evident” and “obvious”?
@JohnM.Landsberg not sure why you think only one is correct in Q3. It is clear that you have been cheated. It is apparent that you have been cheated. It is regretful that you have been cheated. All of these work equally well, no matter how the question is formulated.

@jwpat7 "It is stupid that he ____" is acceptable although informal. It yields .4 mil results on Google if that tells you anything.

@JohnM.Landsberg --agreed on differentiation (however slight), but the test does not ask to differentiate. The choices given are all more or less correct, with the exception of two.

I am sorry to say, the people who wrote that test do not speak English well. All of the options are plausible, except for 2.D and 3.D.
