Mam....here is my answers:

drape-covered by tradition
regimen- beauty treatment
jeopardize- don't cause anything through risk
torment- painful, distressed figure
discrepancy- major differences,disagreements or inconsistencies.

mam, I think the word "jeopardise" should be spelled as"jeopardize"...............
