Strategic thinking: in answering this type of question:
1. Read the question.
2. Pick out the keyword. Determine the root word from the keyword. In this case, it’s ABDUCT, which in English means, take away.
3. Choose the option that contains the word. In anatomy, there’s always almost a term referring to the opposite meaning. To avoid confusion, memorize ONE of these terms only as the other (as in this case, ADDUCTION) will always mean the opposite.
