Explanation

From the clues convenient online access to reading material, it is likely that forecasters would predict a sales decrease. Therefore, you are looking for words that mean decrease. Multiply and appreciate both mean to increase, so you can eliminate choice (A) and choice (F).

Prevail means to dominate, which does not match the meaning you need, and assimilate means to integrate and adjust to, which may seem apt but does not fit the context of the blank or retain the meaning of the sentence. Abate and dwindle mean to decrease, and are your best answers that produce equivalent, appropriate answers.

Hence options B and E are best fit!
