Answer Choices

Nice work!

Explanation

Choice (C) is correct. The mayor was confident about her campaign, so it makes sense to suggest that she felt her political platform would “prevail,” or triumph. The phrase “less...than” indicates that as a result of her confidence, the mayor found her opponent's popularity to be less than a threat; she considered it a mere “distraction.”
