Re: Having established his competence as a playwright with his first play, [#permalink]

OE


B The first clause in this sentence describes the playwright as “competent” in his first play, while the second clause asserts that he has progressed beyond mere competence in his second. Skill is an excellent prediction. Choice (B) mastery fits perfectly; the playwright no longer is merely competent, but is now masterful. You can reject (E) insufficiency as the opposite of what the sentence needs. Choices (A) characterization, (C) understanding, and (D) perception are all elements of writing that the playwright may have improved upon, but you’re looking for a more general word. Nothing in the sentence leads logically to a specific area of improvement.
