Explanation

“Nevertheless” indicates that the governor’s action—vetoing the proposal—was done despite some inclination to act otherwise. The first part of the sentence, then, must show that the governor had some reason to support the proposal. Thus the correct response, when preceded by “not,” should describe an attitude toward the arguments in favor of the proposal that would lead the governor to support it. Four of the choices, “optimistic about,” “convinced by,” “happy with,” and “sanguine about,” indicate positive attitudes. When they are negated by the “not” that precedes the blank, then, they all indicate reasons that the governor would not support the proposal, so they are the opposite of what is called for. However, if the governor was not “unsympathetic to” the arguments for the proposal, he would have had a reason to support the measure he ultimately vetoed. Thus the correct answer is unsympathetic to (Choice E).

Use Math strategy here. 1st sentence use double contrast so negative(while) * negative(not) = plus and last sentence again in negative form for "nevertheless" word so it takes a negative sign. So, plus * negative = negative. Only last word "unsympathetic to" is a negative word , so answer E.
