Explanation

The sentence suggests that it is unfair to tax the middle class unless the upper class is taxed as well. Sporadic means occurring at random times, subtle means barely noticeable, dignified means expressing worthiness or honor, and pardonable means forgivable. None of these fit the idea of unfair. Choices (A) and (C) come closest to unfair or unable to be justified.

Hence options A and C are correct!
