And here are the potential answers...
This isn't as much a truth universally acknowledged
as it is a Pride and Prejudice shout-out.
Snooty allusions aside, "or" and "with" let us know that the first blank deals with "force"
while the second is an antonym for "love." We can eliminate (A) and (B) because moderation
and indifference aren't exactly... forceful.
Both of the words in (D) and (E) express nothing but positive feelings.
That's all well and good... but one of these words needs to be hateful.
"Despise" means to hate, and it's in direct conflict with the idea of somebody "passionately"
loving Jane Austen.
So (C) is the correct answer. As in "Chick Flick."
For her sake, we hope the ghost of Jane Austen never overhears her modern haters.
That would be awkward.
