Hi Daagh,

I had underlined the relevant part of the sentence. Mentioning it again for your benefit "war brewing in Europe, the industrial revolution well-established, and a nascent communication age."
Hope it is clear now.

had to look in the dictionary to know what nascent meant and hence got D. Without the meaning I would have gone for A.

So what's the deal with nascent? Why are A,B,C wrong?
Kindly elaborate

Cheers

Hi,

This question is about the parallelism.

The parallel structure ""noun+adjective" has to be maintained across.

Only option D does this.

Cheers!!
