Here are the potential answers.
Elisabeth's mom says that Elisabeth has "many" other options for college.
So we figure the word in the blank has to be a synonym for "many."
(A) doesn't fit because "limitation" means a restriction of some kind.
Both "deficiency" and "scarcity" mean a shortage or lack of something
so (B) and (C) are the opposite of what we're looking for.
(D) looks promising because "myriad" means a very large number. If this is the one, though,
it would mean that Elisabeth's mom is exaggerating a bit.
"Myriad" was the word originally used in classical history to describe a unit of ten thousand.
That would be a lot of application essays.
After taking a glance at (E), though, we're sure (D) is the word we're looking for.
An "inadequacy" is a failing or lack of something, so it doesn't say what we need
it to. Even though it means that Elisabeth's mom
is probably stretching the truth a bit, we're going with (D) on this one.
D for "Don't judge her mom too harshly."
