ThemeHistorical background of Asia/Asian countries.
The author begins the paragraph by showing the huge contribution of Asia in the manufacturing production of the world two centuries ago , then he talks about subsequent decline and cites probable reasons for the decline and he finds this decline unprecedented.
To understand the factors that led to the colonialism of many Asian countries, he focuses on recognising diversity of Asia in many terms which are enumerated in the paragraph. 

1).Contributed’ is the most suitable word that fits in this context.

Here the author is making correlations, so attributable will be preferred.

It means very deep, very serious.


4). ‘Transformation’ will be the most suitable word here as the author has already mentioned transformation in the preceding sentence.


5). ‘Unprecedented’ will be the most suitable word here that fits in the context. The author begins the paragraph by showing the huge contribution of Asia in the manufacturing production, then he talks about subsequent decline and cites probable reasons for the decline and he finds this decline  ‘unprecedented’.




6). ‘Recognise’ will fit the most in the context.
The author now trying to explain what factors led to the colonialism and imperialism. In this process he says that it’s essential to recognise the diversity of Asia. 


7). ‘Marked’ is the most suitable word here that fits in the context. 


8). ‘Reliance’ is the only word here that fits in the context


9). Across
