Ironically, the myth of Martin Van Buren’s _________ was due largely to circumstances that had little to do with Van Buren himself; in reality, of all the U.S. presidents since Andrew Jackson, Van Buren exceeded the average in education, intellect, and experience.

Explanation

The clue ironically indicates that the blank needs to mean the opposite of exceeded the average in education, intellect, and experience, so your answer could be anything that suggests uneducated, unintelligent, or inexperienced. Of the choices, only mediocrity makes sense.


Hence option C is correct!
