A, D, and H The easiest blank to start with is the first. If “no one made explicit mention of” the leadership hierarchy, then the agreement must have been unspoken. Of the choices, the word closest in meaning to unspoken is tacit. The next easiest blank is the third blank. If Johnson “was best-suited to head the numbers-based project,” then he must have been adept at math. A good prediction would be aptitude. Of the choices, the word closest in meaning to aptitude is acumen. Finally, go to the second blank. If the agreement was tacit, then the employees recognized it without stating it. Of the choices, the word closest in meaning to recognized is acknowledged.
