Question Answer
Procrastination Procrastination is the practice of carrying out less urgent tasks in preference to more urgent ones, or doing more pleasurable things in place of less pleasurable ones, and thus putting off impending tasks to a later time, sometimes to the "last minute" before a deadline.
Disinformation ## False information deliberately and often covertly spread (as by the planting of rumors) in order to influence public opinion or obscure the truth #Examples The writer's latest book examines the effects of propaganda and disinformation during the Cold War. "But more than anything else, we believe the level of fury and disinformation in this debate does a disservice to every student, teacher and taxpayer." — editorial, Newsday (New York), April 19, 2015 #Although the Nazis were accused of using disinformation back in the 1930s, the noun and the practice are most often associated with the Soviet KGB. Many people think disinformation is a literal translation of the Russian dezinformatsiya, which means "misinformation," a term the KGB allegedly used in the 1950s to name a department created to dispense propaganda.

ironically in an ironic statement one thing is said, while another thing is meant. For example, if you were trying to be ironic on a stormy, dreary day, you might say: “What glorious weather!” Or if you were suffering from a bad cold, you might ironically say: “I feel like a million bucks.”
Bombastic #Bombastic, which means "marked by or given to pretentious inflated speech or writing," sure looks like a derivative of the word bomb, #A song of a similar name, Boombastic, briefly topped the charts back in 1995 – but being called bombastic is not a compliment. Synonyms for bombastic include gassy and windy, so one could fairly say that being bombastic, well, stinks. #Bombast gained that sense by the 1600s, and the adjective bombastic arrived in English in 1660
Austerity # Def: Austerity means "enforced or extreme economy." The word's origins are — coincidentally — Greek; austerity comes from austēros, meaning "harsh" or "severe." #Use 1:In response to Greece's economic crisis, the country's foreign creditors imposed a strict program of austerity in 2010; since then, the country's economy has shrunk by 25%. #Use 2:The Greek economy, and the word austerity, are back in the news this week as voters in Greece will choose in a referendum whether to continue foreign aid from other EU countries or to reject creditors' offers and risk default on loans.
