Explanation

For this sentence, it’s important that you know that nuclear holocaust never actually occurred, so it was only a threat that was a daily part of people’s lives.

A secondary meaning of the word specter (which can also mean “ghost”) is “something widely feared as a dangerous occurrence.” All the other words have a kind of categorical relevance, but they don’t fit the sentence.

Specter.
