As clucks of disapproval about Americans' political ______ have grown louder in recent years many historians have looked for contrast to the decades before the Civil War as a time when Americans were enthusiastically engaged in politics.

    A. zealotry
    B. apathy
    C. hypocrisy
    D. partisanship
    E. insincerity
    F. passivity



I am struggling to understand the sentence. There is disapproval about political apathy, and then why do historians look for the contrast to the period when people are enthusiastically engaged in politics? That implies that historians want to see the period when people are not enthusiastically engaged in politics.

It is the exact contrary of what you said.

Now we do have apathy. As it turns out, the historians look at a period in which Americans were enthusiast.

Hope this helps
