    Default help with the choices of words please

    "Since the updated version of this game contains a much larger map, the programmers had to ___ the quality of the graphics to ensure the game runs smoothly."

    A. worsen
    B. sacrifice

    Or, are there any other choices?

    Thanks!!!

    I came up with one!
    "compromise"!
    That's the best one I could ever come up with. What do you guys think?

    I'd use 'lower' or 'reduce'.

    ... the programmers had to sacrifice some quality in the graphics ...
    ... the programmers had to compromise on quality in the graphics ...
    ... the programmers had to lower the quality of the graphics ...
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
