The new administrator was -------; he considered new ideas worthy of consideration but ultimately ------- the old ways.

Answer Choices

Right-o!

Explanation

A “traditionalist” is someone who adheres to a time-honored set of practices or beliefs. “Inferior to” describes something that is of lesser quality or value than something else. An administrator certainly could be a traditionalist, or adhere to time-honored practices. If the new administrator prefers older, established ways of doing things, it makes sense to say that he might consider newer ideas but ultimately, or in the end, decide that they are inferior to, or lesser in value than, older ideas.
