Explanation


The key phrase that indicates how the blank for this question should be completed is “the ability to form an unending series of different molecules.” Among the answer
choices, “diversity” and “variety” clearly fit logically with “unending” and “different” and create two very similar sentences. No other pair of choices here would produce
two sentences as similar in meaning as those created by placing “diversity” and “variety” in the blank. Thus, the correct answer is diversity (Choice A) and variety (Choice C).

"Because" is shift here, so before the shift we have "a central role" , so we need something that contrast it. "diversity";"variety" are opposite to "central role"
