Q.

Biological clocks are of such ____ adaptive value to living organisms, that we would expect most organisms to ____ them.

 A.

meager - evolve

 B.

meager - evolve

 C.

significant - eschew

 D.

obvious - possess

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(D) is correct

The sentence structure suggests that if biological clocks are a great advantage, then most organisms would possess them. [Or, if they are not an advantage, then organisms will not have them.]
Therefore, the obvious value, leads us to expect that organisms possess them.

(meager = small, slight; eschew = shun, avoid; ambivalent = ambiguous)
