Solution with explanation

1. Option ‘C’ (quickness). QUICKNESS = the quality of being fast, especially at a thing, etc. MOVEMENT = an act of moving the body or part of the body: e.g. hand/eye movements; e.g. (i) She observed the gentle movement of his chest as he breathed. (ii) Loose clothing gives you greater freedom of movement. SWIFTNESS = an act of happening or done quickly and immediately. AGILITY = ability to move quickly and easily; e.g. He has the agility of a man half his age.

You see in the game of tennis one needs to move one’s eyes or limbs at the speed of the shuttle-cock with a great speed. None of the words given except QUICKNESS is giving that meaning.

2. Options ‘D’ (calls). CALLS INTO ACTION = to give instructions
