Explanation

The first part of the sentence suggests that the mayor is widely believed to be the opposite of ideologically consistent, while the portion of the sentence following the colon provides support for the assertion that her reputation for wavering is undeserved. The blank, then, must be completed with words that mean the opposite of ideological consistency. “Capriciousness” and “fickleness” are both opposites of consistency, so they are the correct answers. Of the other possible responses, one other pairing—“insensitivity” and “callousness”—are synonyms that would yield sentences alike in meaning, while the other two choices are also close in meaning. But neither of these pairs provides the necessary contrast to consistency that the sentence’s structure calls for. Thus the correct answer is capriciousness (Choice B) and fickleness (Choice D).

She acts more following principles of theory rather than something more related to the expertise or practice.

In other words, she follows abstract concepts that not necessarily are tied to what in reality we do have or to the ground. In concrete.

The two things - at an abstract level and at a concrete level - are not mirrored.


Regards

Hi Carcass,

I do not understand this sentence. Here we have to negate that she is not consistent?

I understand that :

It is widely believed that she is not ( ideologically consistent) but in reality, she is ideologically consistent. The colon means that the following sentence will explain the previous words. Her insistence on the tax reform is not an indication that she isn't consistent or that she has a weak commitment.
