    Dear teachers,

    Would you help to me to make the proper choice of the interpretation of the word in bold in the following sentence?

    scrape one’s way through = force one’s way through

    This move apparently deepened the rifts within the party as some members ignored the boycott to stand in the vote that democracy activists and Western leaders labeled as a sham.

    rift = estrangement, breach, dissension, alienation

    rift within the lute = an apparently minor piece of damage likely to have fatal consequence

    Thanks for your efforts.
