Explanation



The words “Far from being” and the mention of “cutbacks” imply that the correct answer will create a contrast with the idea that “serious researchers are playing a growing role in innovation.” Being “banished from” the corporate world and playing a growing role in it are strongly contrasted.

C is the answer

Far from being (i) ________ the corporate world because of cutbacks, serious researchers are playing a growing role in innovation at many firms.

The phrase "Far from being" at the beginning of the sentence, indicates a contrast. Hence the first part of the sentence - " ________ the corporate world because of cutbacks" should contrast in meaning and intent with the second part - "serious researchers are playing a growing role in innovation at many firms".

Only banished from can accomplish that.

Hence C is the correct answer.
