    The correct answer for this question is "sensual". The sentence mentions the medieval church condemning man's partaking in something, and the word "sensual" fits best in this context as it refers to pleasures related to the senses or physical gratification. The other options, such as "ascetic" (referring to self-discipline and abstinence), "ecclesiastical" (relating to the church), and "hermetic" (relating to secrecy or isolation) do not convey the same meaning as the word "sensual".

    Correct Answer
    A. Prospered----imperative
    Explanation
    The sentence states that the fact that a business has prospered does not create an imperative for it to give away its wealth. This means that just because a business is successful does not mean it is required or obligated to give away its wealth. Therefore, the word "prospered" fits in the first blank as it means to be successful or thrive. The word "imperative" fits in the second blank as it means necessary or essential.
