I too thought that same way that option C is correct, but on comparing the two sentences, D sounds more accurate. C would be correct if 'its' is removed after the blank.

Correct me, if I am wrong.

Both [D], [C] are correct.

Preeti said:   7 years ago
I agree that option C is the answer.

Land (asset) cannot be destroyed nor created. It can be converted to cash (liquidated).

I agree @Tauseef & @Kashish answer.

Because, I also thought that way.

Kashish said:   8 years ago
Assets liquidate so I guess C.

Tauseef Hyder said:   8 years ago
Assets does liquidate, so I'd go for option C.

Option D.

Keep up means to hold up.

And in the next gives you the idea clearly his assets have been "destroyed".

Option D is apt. There is no choice to confound anymore.

Afford is inappropriate because it should be used in positive sentences.

And in option A "removed" is inappropriate because assets cannot be removed.

Keep up-->Maintain a required pace or level. Here we are talking about longer period of time.

Afford-->Have the financial means to do something or buy something. It means one may do something now but in future he may not be able to do.

So option D fits well.
