Paean = praise. Did not know the definition so I went with polemic, which was wrong.

Manhattan Prep is notorious for giving terrible verbal questions, which this one is god-awful. Paean? There's no context for something being praised here. Just awful.

I agree with you that Manhattan verbal questions are not normally what you would see in the real GRE. The prep relies mostly on esoteric vocabulary, and their RC's questions are debatable as well. However, in my opinion, in this context at least, paean and tribute do fit well. They both here mean a thing that is used to admire someone.

Totally agree there. I absolutely hate it when some prep company's prep material wastes my precious time in chasing down an avenue of knowledge that isn't even relevant to the GRE.
