That's what I thought. Key world for first blank is although. Afer I read it, I thought it was something like appreciation and acclaim is the closest one. Second blanl needs a negative word and negligible is a good match.

Guys, you should read very carefully and see the whole picture of the unfolding.

Actually, people hoped in a more consistent cut of the taxes because they are burdened but it has a negligible impact.

I.E the scenario was this: oh my gosh finally, we will have a relief thanks to the new cut (for this the cut itself was followed by a fanfare, a huge acclaim). Indeed, it was an epic fail because people didnt have the result they have expecting.

Hope now is clear.

Regards

The first blank should have a positive spin because of the word "heralded." The word "heralded" means they highly regarded the bill or whatever.
The second blank is tricky- we don't necessarily know that the bill had a bad effect on the middle; all we know is that the cuts that the middle class suffer from negate the benefits of the bill.

If it is burdened then it should have the negative impact so the answer should be "detrimental" why negligible is the "answer".

Negligible is the answer because the taxation bill didn't actually affect the middle-class population. The taxation bill was supposed to create variance, but the property tax, which still has low variance, burdens the middle-class.
