Explanation

The blank describes what consumers demonstrate when boycotting companies, so a word like disapproval would make sense in the blank. Both endorsement and ratification are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (A) and (B).

Neither debilitation, which means weakening, nor machinations, which means schemes, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (D) and (E). Both censure and disapprobation can mean disapproval, so choices (C) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.
