Explanation

While the structure might seem tricky, the blank must oppose refusing for a decade since the patriarch “surrendered.” Agreement would be a good focus. The other choices do not fit the text and are essentially phonetic tricks.

An asseveration is an emphatic assertion. Note the word avaricious in the sentence — it means “greedy,” but it turns out that you didn’t need to know that to answer this question.

Assent.
