that the key word in this sentence is "race."
So we know that whatever word fits in the second blank has to have something to do with
"Reliance" and "dependence" don't have anything to do with race, and, honestly,
don't make much sense at all in this context.
We're not even going to give them the time of day.
Since "entrenched" means to set in, and not always in a good way, we know that whatever
word we're looking for needs to have a negative connotation.
Choice (A), "admiration," is therefore easy to eliminate...
Because admiration is way too positive for this sentence.
"Suspicion" seems acceptably unpleasant so (C) is a possibility...
But "prejudice," as in racism, works better with the topic at hand.
Since "conventional" means normal or accepted, at least according to society,
(D) is the correct answer...
But eh, what does society know?
