..contextual clues..

What is contextual clues?
Contextual clues help to guess the meaning of words.These clues are given in a sentence or a passage.There are 4 types of contextual clues which are :
          ~ rewording the word
          ~ giving its synonyms
          ~ giving its antonyms
          ~ giving detail

Examples : Adam and Maya are having a dispute over which radio station to play at work.It would be so much
                 simpler if they both liked the same kind of music
                 A dispute is a disagreement
