Explanation

Despite the use of the word although, the structure of this sentence, including the colon, makes clear that you need a word that goes in the same direction as the clue. Whether you look to known or the phrase after the colon (or both), the blank must mean something like recognized. None of relegated, abrogated, annulled, or criticized means recognized, so eliminate choices (A), (B), (C), and (D). Someone who is positively recognized for something would be apotheosized, so select choice (E).

Hence option E is correct!

This type of same directions are confusing to me-any suggestions?

Hi..

you do have contrast here, but the contrast is that John kennedy is good player of football but should not be made the president. It should be Ford and then reason for the same is given..

You have to find a word which means similar to made .. apotheosize is correct.
