"Some Dutch sailors even called it the 'loathsome bird' - with comments ...... as that, it's a wonder it didn't die of a broken heart!" I think the answer is worst but I am not sure since worst is usually used with the. Can you verify? Please consider that the answer must consist of only one word. Thanks in advance.

    Please give us the source and some context (what bird?). Is this multiple-choice or are you allowed to pick any word in the world?

    Source is Forum 2 Student's Workbook which was published by Express Publishing. Context is about Dodo bird. I am allowed to pick any word. Thanks.

    Sorry Copyright. I thought this one was a go.

    The only possible answer is "such": "with comments such as that." The sentence could also be constructed as "with comments like that," but the "as" is there to let you know that the only possible answer is "such as."
