Choose the answer which best rewords the italicized portion. If you think the original wording is best, choose option A.

President Morsi is currently seeking to get foreign investment and businesses to Egypt in order to begin mending the economy.
  1. get
  2. attract
  3. find
  4. encourage
Answer: B - The best choice is “attract”

“Get” and “find” are both synonymous with “going after something.” “Encourage” has a similar meaning to “inspire,” but the sentence would need additional wording for “encourage” to fit within the context of the sentence. “Attract” - meaning “to draw in” - is the best word to use in this sentence.
