emerges, consideration


extends, planning

 Hide Ans

Option(C) is correct

Emerges means comes out. Confusion cannot be derived from the situation.
To stem is to stop something, which the sentence is not pointing to.

Therefore, options (a) and (b) are incorrect.
Option (d) is incorrect as in the second filler 'planning' can't be used.

(1) Comment(s)


A. The option says "sterns" instead of "stems".

B. Stems can also mean "to arise or originate" which fits into the context the same way as "emerges".
