Matters of the Head and the Heart

Question
25 out of 125
 
Bemused
(adj) lost in thought; greatly confused. Origin: be + muse => 'in the state of deep thinking' => 'absent-minded to everything else' => 'confused about everything else.' When Ravi got the question paper, there was a bemused look on his face. Wasn't it the science paper today? Why had the invigilator given the maths question paper? The 13-year-old girl was bemused at everybody's changed behaviour that day. Her mother did not beat her even once and even told her not to do any housework. Instead, she washed her hair (!), made her wear very nice, new clothes and then decorated her with her own lipstick and nailpolish which she otherwise never allowed her even to touch. Baba always came home very late. But that day, not only was he at home, he also picked up Chhotu and told her that she need not bother about the little boy and should only get ready herself. Then guests came and mother told her to go and greet them. They also smiled upon seeing her. What was happening? Why was everyone being so good to her?
