Select the most appropriate word to fill in the blank.
As we fight disinformation and misinformation, and keep apace with the happenings, we need to ______ greater resources to news gathering operations.
Correct Answer : b ) commitExplanation :
The given filler sentence states that in the situation where we need to fight misleading information and other negative effects, we will have to dedicate or devote our major/ most of the resources to media operations.
‘To devote or dedicate’ is the meaning that the filler demands as per the context.
From the give options, the word that provides this meaning is commit and rendering.
Submit means ‘accept or yield to a superior force or to the authority or will of another person’.
Commit means ‘perpetrate or carry out’ and 'to be dedicated to'.
Prohibit means ‘to stop or ban’.
Rendering means ‘providing or giving’.
But as per grammatical accuracy, we need the first form of verb. Therefore, ‘commit’ will be used and not rendering.
Hence, option b is the correct answer.
