And here are the potential answers...
This sentence gives us two major clues: people no longer believe that the universe contains
a fixed number of stars, and those big balls of super-heated gas
....uh, these big balls of super-heated gas keep on multiplying like
So whatever word goes into the blanks has got to get across the idea that there are
way more stars than scientists originally thought.
"Outperforms" doesn't fit because it means that something does better than something else.
"Expands" means that something gets bigger,
so it doesn't work in this sentence either.
If you plugged "exceeds" into this sentence,
it would mean that the number of stars has increased.
This is our number one contender so far.
(D) doesn't work because "overbears" means that something dominates something else.
Nothing about an increase in numbers here.
"Relinquishes" describes when somebody gives something up, so we say no to (E).
And that brings us back to (C).
As in, "Correctomundo."
