Quote:
Football, which is by far the most popular sport in Europe. The word “whereas” then creates a contrast: the U.S. fans are evenly split among their many sports. “Regarded,” “inspired,” and “enjoyed” are all traps related to sports or fandom, but don’t properly express the sentence’s intention that the popularity is split. “Measured” is close, but doesn’t quite divide things appropriately. “Apportioned” means divided and allocated; it is the correct answer.


Ask if something remains unclear

The Answer is E , as the Sentence talks about something (Fan Following ) being DISTRIBUTED OR SHARED equally amongst US sports so APPORTIONED is the right answer.

Rejecting Options
A -There is no mention about regarding any sport
B- Inspiration is not talked about
C -No talk about Enjoyment
D - Measured may sound right , but it does not gives the clear picture of Distribution & Sharing

If you understand the overall meaning of the sentence is not difficult.

In Europe, the fanbase is highly concentrated towards the soccer and a few others towards the rest of the sports. Instead, in US, the base is evenly distributed among all sports.

So E is the only suitable answer.
