Explanation

The sentence concerns skeptics’ reaction to a plan to generate revenue by charging visitors to Web sites. To justify the skeptics’ reaction, the “steep prices” must be associated with a decrease in visitor volume. Only “bridling” and “inhibiting” are consistent with this logic and result in sentences nearly alike in meaning. “Forbidding” is too strong: steep prices might dissuade a casual visitor, but they would not forbid one. Although
“exciting” and “provoking” can be similar in meaning, they do not fit the logic of the sentence.

Thus, the correct answer is bridling (Choice A) and inhibiting (Choice D).
