Is Gymglish right with these synonyms ?
Towards the end of the dialogue, Luna tells Polly that no one should 'feel ashamed' for suggesting something silly.
Using the context of the phrase to help you, choose the word below which does NOT share a very similar meaning with ashamed.
This is the only choice which does not share a similar meaning with the word 'ashamed'. Someone who feels 'unintelligent' might also feel 'ashamed', but the two words are not synonymous.
'Self-conscious' does share a similar sense with the word 'ashamed'. Though the two words shouldn't be considered synonyms, their meanings are very close.
Excerpt: Well, so that nobody feels ashamed for suggesting something silly. Everyone should be able to express their ideas freely, whenever they want, without being censored or ridiculed.
My Question: In what way does the word 'self-concious' share a similar meaning or a close meaning with 'ashamed' ?
Also the word 'humiliated' doesn't fit in my opinion.
What do you think ?
