Answer

Answering this question depends in part on your knowledge of vocabulary. You have to know what the words “dictatorship,” “docile,” and “expedient” mean. You also have to watch out for key words such as not. If you leave out the word not then answer choices like (A) and (B) make sense. But only choice (C) makes sense. A dictatorship would probably require its citizens to be docile & make outcasts of those who do not conform to its rules.
