All of the laws enforced by Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, except for the Equal Pay Act, require you to file a Charge of Discrimination before you can file a job discrimination lawsuit against your employer. In addition, an individual, organization, or agency may file a charge on behalf of another person in order to protect the aggrieved person’s identity. There are time limits for filing a charge.

In this passage, which of the following words most closely means “aggrieved?”

distressed

Explanation

In this context, “distressed” is the best synonym for “aggrieved” because a person who is aggrieved is someone who feels he/she has been “wronged” in some way. The other words have similar meanings but do not fit into the context as well as distressed does.
