Not a trick question

Circle the correct answer:

"I wish Bush would be (coherent, eschewed) for once during a speech, but there are theories that his everyday diction charms the below-average mind, hence insuring him Republican votes."

That was a question on a vocabulary quiz given by a Bennington, Vermont, high school teacher.

Bonus Scriptoids question: The teacher says he will (eschew, equilibrate) such politically themed questions in the future.

The AP story conveniently points out that the correct answer is "coherent."

I will conveniently point out that the correct answer to the bonus Scriptoids question is "equilibrate."

Mr. Chenkin, if you read this, please publish the new, improved bipartisan vocabulary quiz questions (and answers) on a class blog.
Sounds like they'll be fun.
