Question:

Which is the best version of the underlined portion of sentence 12 (reproduced below)?
Many cities, however, have chosen to remove these statues with as little fanfare and pomp as possible in an attempt to avoid a repetition of the hateful attack in Charlottesville, Va.

A with as little fanfare as possible
Explaination

This answer choice is correct because “fanfare” and “pomp” are very similar words and are therefore redundant. Removing one of these words is the best way to fix the sentence.
