Best answer

1)  furhter

2) historic ( famous or important in history, or potentially so. )

3) distrust ( the feeling that someone or something cannot be relied upon. )

Distrust and mistrust are roughly the same. Both mean (1) lack of trust or (2) to regard without trust. But distrust is often based on experience or reliable information, while mistrust is often a general sense of unease toward someone or something

4) true

5) compliment

Ans E)
