applebus - Cognizant of is the correct idiom : a person who is cognizant of but undeterred by the fluctuations of public opinion.

Hope it helps

In numerous political accounts, the definition most commonly used to describe a strong leader is that of a person who is cognizant of but undeterred by the fluctuations of public opinion.

A. most commonly used to describe a strong leader is that of a person who is cognizant of but(The choice is correct when you read it.)
B. that is most commonly used to describe a strong leader is a person who is cognizant of but(The choice is incorrect because "most" is an adjective referring to "is" which is a verb here. An adjective can't modify a verb. While in choice A it correctly modifies "Definition".)
C. most commonly used to describe a strong leader is a person who is cognizant but(The choice is incorrect because we need a "cognizant of " to refer to fluctuation of public opinion. Also here when we have a but placed without a comma. So, we can't have an independent clause before but.)
D. most commonly used to describe a strong leader is a that of a person who is cognizant but(The choice is incorrect for reasons mentioned in option C.)
E. that is most commonly used to describe a strong leader is that of person who is cognizant of but also(The choice is incorrect for the reasons mentioned for option C and option B)

Hey Novice90 ,

Here I go:

E is wrong because using 'But also' changes the meaning. As per the meaning of the sentence, I am trying to say "Although the person is cognizant of fluctuations, he/she is undeterred by fluctuations. ". E is trying to say person is both cognizant and undeterred by fluctuations. So, a contrast is missing in E.

Does that make sense?

Hi abhimahna,

Thank you for the response.

Doesn't the "but" in the "but also" indicate a contrast?

Hey Novice90 ,

Nope. Not only X but also Y rules says It's not just X but also Y.

e.g. : I will not only drink water but also drink beer.

It is not used to show contrast. It is just used to add another item to the list. One should be very carefull in using such idioms.

The moment I have 'but' with 'also', it means I am adding another item to the list "without any contrast".

Does that make sense?
