Question


As a young man, Jean Toomer spoke of his desire to integrate the seemingly …………..elements of racial heritage so that they might …………………, rather than, oppose each other.

(A) archaic……….reprove

(B) contrary………..complement

(C) dissimilar……..dispel

(D) baffling………..exceed

(E) inverted………..induce

Analysis


In this sentence, the second missing word is easier to spot than the first. The phrase rather than oppose, coming immediately after the second missing word, implies that the second missing word must be opposite of oppose. The only word, among the given choices for the second missing word to mean opposite of oppose, is the word complement (meaning be harmonious with). Its pair word contrary completes a logical sentence.

So, the choice (B) is the answer.
