Hello,

I could not find "othered" in the standard dictionaries online, and I am not able to figure out "othered" either. Could you please clarify this word "othered" that is used in the test sentence Question 5?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Bhikkhu1991a.

It's been too long since I put this test together, Bhikkhu. Perhaps it's a typo for 'smothered'?
