Terrible is terror inducing. Shouldn't the farthest meaning be soothing. Delectable mean either delicious or extremely attractive.

Hey Gagan, That's because the meaning of terrible is also extremely unpleasant and hence the antonym delectable. The context in which the question has been asked is unpredictable. The source I referred to, was the same as yours to confirm the answer before putting it in the lesson. It mentioned delectable as one of the antonyms and hence I decided to go ahead with the given answer. Thanks, Palak

Hey Amruth! I'm glad to know that someone is so keenly into such practices. It would have been better had these been MCQs as the course is on MCQs exclusively. I'll anyway try to include them somewhere. Thanks again! :)
why cant HINDMOST be the opposite for FOREMOST in mcq 3 as hindmost means the last?

Hey Tamang! Pleasure to resolve your doubt. :) Foremost means something which is given maximum prominence whereas hindmost stands for furthest back. If you check out anywhere, you'll find the opposite of hindmost as first or leading. Therefore the furthest word to something which is "most prominent" should be "least prominent" or less important and hence, unimportant.
