My brother just took his exam and there was this reading passage about deforestation of rain forests. The questions were pretty easy; however, there was this question:
Which of these is the closest in meaning to the word "regenerate" in paragraph 2?
A. repeat B. refine C. recover D. renew
And this question needed information from the following line from the passage:
[...] Some logged forests, if left alone, can regenerate in a few decades.
Apparently, the answer is either recover or renew. So what do you think is the most correct answer in this context?
