    The danger is that the pragmatics on both sides will be sidelined, while the extremists will _____ and empower each other.

    (A) embolden (B) imperil (C) integrate (D) entrench

    因為有while, 可以知道pragmatics是立場對立的. 所以你可以知到pragmatics作不到的, extremists 相反的會作的到.

    意思不對所以B(imperil:使危及)跟C(integrate:使結合,使完整)都確定不會選.

    A, embolden (使變得大膽) 最符合題意.

    為何不選D?

    entrench 作及物動詞時表示

    1. to place in a position of strength; establish firmly or solidly: safely entrenched behind undeniable facts. 確立. To fix firmly or securely: "Today managed care plans are entrenched in the economy, enrolling 61 percent of the population" (Peter T. Kilborn).

    2.

    to dig trenches for defensive purposes around (oneself, a military position, etc.). 挖掘壕溝圍住來防禦. To provide with a trench, especially for the purpose of fortifying or defending.

    相較之下, A比D合題意.

    因為and之故, embolden跟empower都符合激進者的動作

    entrench顯得很保守了 (需要證據來背書的確立)

    如果沒有A,我個人就可能會選D.

    這裡有個例子:

    And as it happens, there are many ways to entrench people and policies within the executive branch....

    ------------------------------

    sideline 作動詞時表示"使無能,使無法運作,排除在外無法有貢獻或助益"

    to render incapable of participation, esp. in anything involving vigorous, physical action, as a sport: An injury to his throwing arm sidelined the quarterback for two weeks.

    The danger is that the pragmatics on both sides will be sidelined, while the extremists will embolden and empower each other.

    危險的是兩邊的語言學者將被排除在外(排除於決策核心之外而無法有貢獻?),同時激進份子會鼓動彼此變得膽大而肆無忌憚
