Not wanting to present an unwarranted optimistic picture in the board meeting, the CEO estimated the sales growth_______.
Question 4 Explanation:
Since the estimation of the sales growth given by the CEO is not optimistic therefore we are looking for a negative word here. So ‘liberally’ and ‘fancifully’ are crossed out as they have a positive meaning. ‘Strict’ is an adjective mainly used for people and we are talking about the sales growth here so strict can’t be the answer. ‘Pessimistic’ could be used when the CEO did not know the actual picture but could only make negative assumptions. Conservative is the correct word to be used here because it means that the CEO did not estimate the growth to be a lot or in excess. So option E is the correct answer.
