Since the sentence tells us that trees make oxygen, which is breathable...
...and absorb carbon dioxide, which is presumably not...
...we know that we're looking for a word that describes the air as being less breathable
or contaminated in some way. And yes we all "heart" trees. Go hug one.
Knowing this, we can filter out (A), (C), and (E) right away.
"Sterile" means something that's super clean. "Beneficial" means something that's
good for you. And "invigorating" means something that gives you energy.
None of these words describe the horrors of contaminated air at all.
"Auspicious" means things are looking good and the future seems bright. Not exactly
the right word for a world with no trees and full of toxic air.
The Lorax is turning over in his grave.
Looks like our answer is "noxious," which works because it means poisonous, toxic, and
Our answer is (D). D for "Dig a hole and plant a seed, so we can all breathe easy."
