Explanation:


Official Answer (OA) – D
Concepts Tested – Idiom, Parallelism, Diction
A – The correct idiom is ‗contributed to‘ and not ‗contributed for‘.
B – new senses ‗given‘ distorts the meaning of the sentence. ‗booming of an economic colossus‘ breaks the parallel construction
C – ‗will captivate‘ is incorrect since the sentence is talking about something that has already happened
E – You need an ‗and‘ before the last item in the list ‗a heroic rescue.....‘ . The correct idiom is ‗contributed to‘ and not ‗contributed for‘.
