I got a sentence reading question that I can't deal with.
Aware that his party's__image was a direct result of its distasteful policies, the candidate espoused a kinder, more__, political platform.
A affable---malicious
B miserly---acrimonious
C harsh---benevolent
D amiable---pragmatic
E altruistic---humane
The problem is that I think the answer is clearly C, but according to the official CORRECT ANSWERS, it's B instead of C.
