2 Answer

  • I'm pretty sure the answer is A. The word corpse brings a more gruesome vision to mind because when you hear "corpse" you think of a dead body.
  • I thinkk that the correct option is A. "The word corpse brings a more gruesome vision to mind," due to the fact that corpse is the medical/legal terms for a dead body. Clinical and legal terminology is employed in order to be precise as well as to avoid emotional or cultural connotations of alternative terms that can be a distraction. When refering to a corpse, whe usually think in a dead body especially of a human being even though it could be also an animal.
