Which of these sentences contains an oxymoron? Mr. Keynes was a workaholic who found vacations as relaxing as six rounds wrestling with an alligator. Even though he wanted to travel, Mr. Keynes could not think of any vacation spot as comfortable as his own living room. The island landscape seemed to come alive before Mr. Keynes' eyes, flora and fauna swimming through his vision in every direction. Although he didn't want to, Mr. Keynes took his laptop along with his bathing suit and other holiday clothes because this was a working vacation.

When looking for an oxymoron, you typically are looking for a short phrase, just two or three words. Those words are opposites. For example, "ground pilot" or "the same difference."

I would say D because an oxymoron are two words in the same sentence that contradicts and "working vacation" have two different meanings.

A conveys that same idea. It's contrary. But it doesn't contain an oxymoron.

I had to look up the meaning but after looking at what the meaning is and what you said @BaconBits that's what I concluded to.
