Are you sure its correct? i need to ace this final exam this study guide test is close to the real one my teacher saids it is atleast...

Yes.  I've done 2 like this already from other students.  Weasel words are mostly used in advertising.  It goes under the title of "it it's too god to be true, it probably is".  These words should be easy to remember.

Acronym is like AA (alcoholics anonymous), it's an abbreviation of all caps that stand for something.

Malapropism is when you accidentally use one word when you meant to use another that sounds alike. For instance "Doctor prescribed milk of amnesia" in stead of "milk of magnesia". 

Jargon is used in law, medicine, statistics, other specialty professions that only those in the profession would understand, such as "upper abdominal, thoracic, etc" for medicine.
