d. Aspect

Answer Verified Verified
Hint: A synonym refers to a word that is completely or nearly the same in meaning to another word. ‘Facet’ is a noun which means one side of something, or particular side or aspect of something.

Complete answer:
Option a ‘Sweet’ can be a noun or adjective as the sentence demands. It means something that has the characteristic of being delightful. The word has no connection with the meaning of the given word ‘Facet’. So, this option is the incorrect option.
Option b ‘Tap’ is a noun as well as a verb. As a noun, it means a device which allows flow of liquid through it. As a verb, it means to draw or obtain something or it also could mean to hit something very lightly. In both the cases, the meaning of ‘Tap’ does not match the meaning of ‘Facet’. So, this option is the incorrect option.
Option c ‘Deceit’ is a noun which means the act of being fraudulent. This word cannot be the synonym of the given word as it differs in meaning. So, this option is the incorrect option.
Option d ‘Aspect’ can either be a noun or a verb. It means a side, a particular feature or perspective of something. This exactly matches the meaning of ‘Facet’. So, this option is the correct option.
The correct answer is Option ‘d’.

Note: Some commonly used synonyms of ‘facet’ are feature, characteristic, detail etc.
