A. Possible: Occur

B. Synthetic: Create

C. Simultaneous: Coincide

Correct Answer :

C. Simultaneous: Coincide


Contiguous means in contact or in close proximity without actually touching. Abut means adjacent; touch or join at the edge or border. Thus the words are synonymous.
Possible means that may or can be and occur means to take place or to happen. Simultaneous means existing or occurring at the same time and coincide means to happen at the same time or during the same period. Therefore, these words are synonyms.
