A more immediate effect, unfortunately, has been the _________ communication gap between the rich and poor. 

Detailed Solution for Test: Sentence Equivalence- 5 - Question 7

The missing word describes the communication gap between the rich and poor. This missing word has a negative connotation as it has been mentioned that it is an unfortunate effect. ‘Inconceivable’ could have been used in the blank, but it does not have a synonym in the given list. The missing word cannot be a word like ‘shrinking’, as a lessening gap between the rich and the poor cannot be an unfortunate effect.

Out of the given list of answer options the only other word that carries the same meaning as ‘chooses’ is ‘selects’. In view of the above, it is evident that A and C are the correct answers.

This implies that the missing word cannot be a word like ‘cessation, ‘abatement’ or ‘deterioration’ which has negative connotations. ‘Growth’ and ‘development’ fit well in the blank and they impart a significant meaning to the sentence. Therefore, B and D are the correct answers.
