    a. debate b. disagreement

    The correct answer is 'a'. That's why I thought fierce is the reason that we could choose 'b'. According to what you cited now I am sure both are correct. Right?
    Both are correct, but, a) is the better choice. Why? Can you figure it out? :D

    Hint: One implies the other.
    That is right. They debate because they disagree, and not the other way around.

    Don't throw the baby out with the bath-water. Just because something seems useless doesn't mean it is.
