Explanation

The semicolon trigger indicates that the two parts of the sentence will agree, so recycle the clue understanding into the blank or use a simple word like knowledge. Both incognizance and nescience are the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (B) and (E).

Neither somnolence, which means drowsiness, nor belletrism, which means engagement in the genre of literature known as belles-lettres, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (D) and (F). Both discernment and acumen can mean understanding, so choices (A) and (C) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.
