      That’s right, Sumit.

      I’ve mentioned the meanings of some of the difficult words in my explanation below. Take a look 🙂

  1. TG.Prabhat

    The answer is 3.

    1. and 4. don’t make sense since plans that authors have criticized, or expressed severe disapproval of, are likely to not excite scientists and science fiction writers.

    3. fits best.

    Dilettante- a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge.

    Traducer- someone who speaks maliciously and falsely of someone; slanders; defames

    Delineate- to describe or portray (something) precisely.

    Aficionado- a person who is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about an activity, subject, or pastime.
