good job iqbaloo7!

Drone also means idle person. Whenever drone's verb, it'll mean talk dully/buzz or murmur like a bee.

Dossier means file of documents on a subject.

Dormant means sleeping/lethargic/latent.

 Mam, here is my findings for those words:

 :) :) :)
 Dissuade = put off, discourage, talk out off.
 Dissident = dissenter, rebellious.
 Dissonance = discord, disagreement, conflict.
 Dolorous = painful, intolerable situation, doleful.
 Docile = compliant, unassuming, tame, obedient.
