Contrary to the scholarly wisdom of the 1950â€™s and
early 1960â€™s that predicted the processes of
modernization and rationalization would gradually undermine it, ethnicity is a worldwide phenomenon
of increasing importance.
(A) would gradually undermine it
(B) to be a gradual undermining of it
(C)would be a gradual undermining of ethnicity
(D) to gradually undermine ethnicity
(E) gradually undermining it
My answer is A. it clearly refers to ethnicity. C and D can thus be eliminated as the use of "it" is better than "ethnicity". I am unable to explain why B and E are wrong, but I just feel that A is more appropriate of the three.
