GRE Question for September 21st
People expect that their elected officials will not be __________ representatives; it is considered common knowledge that politicians always have their own bent.
Punctuation can serve as a road-sign. In this case, the semicolon indicates that the second sentence will mirror the sentiment of the first. The second sentence tells us that people expect politicians to have a bent, or be biased. Therefore, we might predict the first sentence to read 'officials will not be unbiased or impartial.' Now, find the word that best matches the prediction.
We can see that choice (D) is best. Disinterested (or dispassionate) means unbiased, professional and composed. None of the other choices means unbiased.
