Q.

Corruption is ____ in our society; the integrity of even senior officials is ____ 

 A.

growing - unquestioned

 B.

endangered - disputed

 C.

pervasive - intact

 D.

rife – suspect

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

The semicolon suggests that the second part expands upon the first part. So, if corruption is rife (common), then we will doubt the integrity of the officials. Their integrity will be suspect (doubtful).

(pervasive = spreading everywhere; rife = common)
