Senility is the correct one. Because senility- the state of being senile while dotage- the time when one is not so string as before it can be mental or physical.

What is the opposite of dotage?

Rahul said:   6 years ago
It is a period of life in which a person is old and week.

Tanzil said:   6 years ago
I guess dotage and senility both meaning is same.

Senility is the correct answer as dotage means the period of life in which a person is old and weak. Suppose if we frame a sentence using dotage then it is as follows:- Nowadays girls are considered as a pillar of support in their parents dotage.

Using Senile:-Mary could not cope up with hier senile husband and ran away from her house.

Dotage means 0% growth in age.

Hamshini said:   7 years ago
Dotage -the period of life in which a person is old and weak.

Synonyms-declining years, old age.

So, dotage is a right option. Thanks for all your explanation.

Dotage should be the answer I guess. Because the question is asking the phase of life when a man acts like a fool. It's not asking the word for acting like a fool in old age. Just notice the slight difference.

Thanks for all your explanation of the answer.

Senility should be the answer. Senile is having or showing the weaknesses or diseases of old age, especially a loss of mental faculties, whereas dotage is the period of life where the person is old and weak. This is my opinion.

It would be really helpful if someone posts the right answer as soon as possible.
