    Here is a question to choose
    the best word from among the four choices.
    Q.The Jordanian leader seemed ( ) to attending a conference.
    1.amenable 2.edible 3.attributable 4.bizarre
    "amenable" is the one, but does "bizarre" also make sense in the sentence ?

    amenable to attending:tick:
    bizarre to attending

    Welcome to the forum, banbi. I wonder if you are also relying on the wrong definition of "bizarre". It would mean something extremely unusual, but in the sense of shocking or things never seen before. (Note that it would probably have to be "bizarre for".)

    >He gave a speech praising the man who had sworn to overthrow his president.
    >He arrived riding a mule.

    <Wow, bizarre!

    Thank you for your help!
    I've checked the definition and now I understand why "bizarre" doesn't go well in the sentence.
