Explanation

Both the description of the ideological gap as insurmountable and the trigger while tell you that the word for the blank needs to mean the opposite of accumulating wealth. Both avarice and cupidity are the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (B) and (E).

Neither empathy, which means the vicarious experience of another person’s feelings, nor parsimony, which means frugality, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (C) and (D). Both largess and philanthropy can refer to generosity with money, so choices (A) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.
