    Okay, another connotation one. Let's see if you can get this one. :D Read the sentence. Does the connotation of "Chain of grace" sound positive or negative?

    Great! :) So let's look at these answer choices. We can eliminate the positive sounding ones, because we want chain to have a different (aka negative) connotation. Right away I see one that can be eliminated, what about you?

    Awesome. We can also get rid of "flowing," because tat sounds graceful. We don't want graceful, we want something awkward and clunky. :)

    Exactly. :) Heavy makes it sound all clunky and awkward. :) Not good, negative connotation. :)
