Explanation

The Though at the beginning of the sentence tells you that the second part of the sentence will oppose the idea of the big firm (the “industry leader”) being punished while the small firm gets away with something.

Indeed, the small firm is working with the larger one to do wrong — it is in cahoots. In the second blank, you need a word that means “complicit in” or “helping (in a bad way).” Only abetting works. Watch out for the trap answer colluding. This word does mean to cooperate in order to commit a wrong, but doesn’t fit for grammatical reasons — you can’t collude plans. Rather, you collude with X to do Y (collude with a competitor to raise prices).

In cahoots, abetting.
