Explanation


The sentence sets up two parallel, contrasting concepts. The word in the blank must contrast with “orthodoxy,” and since “convention” in the second contrasting pair is synonymous
with “orthodoxy,” the correct answer should be roughly synonymous with “novelty.” The word “invention” is the best choice.
Thus, the correct answer is invention (Choice D).

The clue is orthodox. So when something unorthodox(invention here) fights it to a draw then it gains some credibility.
