The word “Legerdemain” should remind you of a “Legendary Magician” who by the sleight of her hand can make an entire building vanish! You know its a trick but its just so believable! Remember thus.
The word “Nepotism” should remind you of Napoleon, the French Emperor, who was attached to his family and made his brothers kings although most of them were bad rulers and corrupt.
The word “Nether” should remind you of “Netherlands” – the European country. “Netherlands” means “the lower lands”. Remember thus.
“Nettle-some” should remind you of “Settle”. Imagine a nettlesome fly that is not allowing to settle and sleep peacefully. The buzzing is throwing you off! Remember thus.
The word “Nebulous” should remind you of “Nebula”, which is a giant cloud of dust and gas in space. Nothing can be seen clearly. Everything is hazy and unclear.
“Zany” rhymes with “Crazy”. Imagine a crazy yet funny friend of yours who loves to party and goes all zany after a couple of shots! Remember thus.
It may sound foolish but imagine yourself in a mess. You need help but no one is helping you out. They politely decline telling you “No, Dear!” (Those self-centred fools!) When you find no one to help you out, you would know that you have hit rock-bottom, your nadir. Thus, remember “Nadir” by equating it with “No, Dear!”
“Reticent” rhymes with “Silent”. Imagine a silent patient in a hospital who is shy about sharing her pain with others. She retains everything silently.
“Refulgent” rhymes with “Detergent”. Imagine yourself cleaning a dirty utensil with detergent to make it refulgent – shine brightly!
Imagine yourself destroying your sister’s prom dress and working vigorously to repair the dress so that she does not hate you for life. This is the only way for you to redress the situation, my friend!
