To awaken a feeling in a person means to cause them to start having this feeling.

Kishor A said: (Jul 7, 2011)  
Awakened means wake, arouse, provoke, kindle, awake etc.

Ubtej said: (Aug 31, 2012)  
I think AWAKENED should be enlightened. More appropriate among the options. Waken is kind of a loose shot.

Ashok Mishra said: (Sep 28, 2012)  
Awaken means enlightened.

Vishal said: (Jul 10, 2013)  
Yes, enlightened should be more appropriate.

Divya said: (Jul 23, 2013)  
I agree awakened should be enlightened. An awakening means starting or enlightenment of something new.

Prakash said: (Sep 8, 2013)  
Awaken means make an entity to become aware, so that word aware means make some one to realise the truth.

Sindhuja said: (Nov 5, 2013)  
Why not the answer is enlightened?

Sri said: (Dec 24, 2013)  
Awakened means waken.

Borhan said: (Mar 9, 2014)  
Awakened is an adjective. So synonym may also be an adjective.

Enlightened is appropriate.

Emb said: (Oct 16, 2014)  
I agree with Borhan. I find the Q-A misleading/confusing - should we go for strict synonyms (as stated in the answer feedback, though not in the question) or for nearest meaning?

Barbara said: (Oct 19, 2014)  
Awakened is a past participle/adjective and its synonym needs also to be the same.

Keziah said: (Nov 16, 2014)  
Enlightened is more appropriate than waken. Waken being synonymous to awaken is just like saying that the synonym of enlightened is lightened.

Rathi said: (Dec 3, 2014)  
Awaken synonyms arouse, awake, excite, provoke, revive, etc...

Trishul said: (Jul 15, 2015)  
Awakened and waken are in two different tense form. Doesn't that make awaken inappropriate.

Silu said: (Aug 5, 2016)  
Sure, it is enlightened.

Soumya said: (Oct 25, 2016)  
Yeah, enlightened seems more appropriated.

Mani Ganesan said: (Oct 25, 2016)  
Enlightened means awakened.

Rheave said: (Jan 7, 2017)  
Enlightened should be the correct answer.

Rupesh said: (Jul 11, 2021)  
Enlightened means awakened. So it should be the right option.
