Text Completion- Democracy

    Democracy is better ___________through the ballot box than it is through the crowding of main squares, which is a _______________ image, but a misleading representation of the “people’s will”.

    1. focused, ineffective
    2. affected, moving
    3. effected, powerful
    4. realized, fleeting


  • Correct Answer
    Choice (C)

Detailed Solution

Blank (1): We can rule out focused and affected as choices, as they don’t make sense in this blank. Effected and realized are possibilities here.

Blank (2): The part of the sentence that reads “but a misleading representation of people’s will” tells us clearly that the appropriate word for this blank is powerful. A fleeting image does not make an impact and so does not make sense when used with “but…”

So the correct answer choice is (c) effected, powerful

Correct Answer: C
