“Insouciant” can be remembered as “In + Soup + Ant”. Imagine an ant floating around in a bowl of soup with no care. It is just happy in a casual way. Nothing concerns it because it has food! Remember thus.
Imagine a mighty warrior secluding herself in her living quarters from others in her village before she goes out seeking quests. Thus, remember the word “Sequester” as a combination of Seclusion Quarters + Seek Quest. Remember thus.
The word “Quarantine” should remind you of “Quarter”, which is used to refer to rooms or lodgings, especially those allocated to people in military or domestic service. Imagine a large number of people who have been kept separate in quarters, which would mean that the people are in a quarantine. Remember thus.
The word “Quan-dary” should remind you of a tough Quant (quantitative) problem that you are trying to solve but are not being able to understand the relevance of the Quadratic equations given. You are now in a dilemma whether you should continue trying or just give up! Remember thus.
The word “COR-RUG-ATED” should remind you of a Coarse Rug, which is rough, wrinkled, and not smooth. Remember thus!
“Accoutre” should remind you of a friend who offers you “a Coat” so that you are well-dressed and equipped for the ball dance soon to take place. Remember thus!
The word “Ablution” should remind you of “Blue Ocean”. Sounds similar and rhymes right? Imagine being in front of a blue ocean. What do you do? Of course, go take a bath. Indulge in ablution. Well, in a way. Remember thus.
“Bauble” sounds a lot like “Bubble” – looks cool but has no real value and all it requires to go bust is a prick! Just like a bubble is something that is only superficially attractive but has nothing substantial inside it, a bauble too is just a gimmick without much value.
Imagine the personal secretary of a top boss. Her tone is sharp and she does not listen to anybody but the boss. Her standard statements start with the phrase: “As per…”. Remember the word “Asperity” thus: AS + PER + IT + Y. Guess the name of the personal secretary. Yes, it Mme. Asperity. She is harsh with a sharp tone.
Imagine yourself in a cool band where you pass on information to each other in a casual manner just like that. Remember the phrase “bandied about” thus: The band members bandied about many urban myths just for fun.
