Explanation

While the legislators claimed the Contagious Diseases Acts strengthened the nation, the change- direction trigger even though shows that the social purists disagreed. You want a word similar to harm or weaken for the blank. Hampered is similar to harm and provides you with an equivalent sentence; advanced and enhanced go in the opposite direction, so eliminate choices (A) and (E). Ameliorated and supplanted don’t make sense in the context of
the sentence, so eliminate choices (B) and (D) and select choice (C).

Hence option C is correct!
