Sample test:
Though they disliked the tone of his speech, they finally decided to ( ) his suggestion for it sounded practical.

A. adopt
B. receive

I chose A here while the given key is B. Could you tell me the difference between the two here? (Is the key wrong?)

Thanks if you would help : )

    The key is wrong. There are other words that could be used instead of "adopt", but I cannot see how "receive" could be one of them.
