    integration

    Which word should I use?

    Globalization is also dark. The process began through "discovery" and colonization. It demanded integration ___ the expenses of local independence, colour, difference.

    1) at
    2) on
    3) by
    4) for

    I only know "integration with", but this test has no this option.

    Thanks.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: integration

    I'd say "at the expense of..." Not "expenses."

    Re: integration

    Well, thank you for that. Which preposition would you use? I think "at" works.

    Re: integration

    Yes, "at."

    "At the expense of" means one thing is sacrificed or lessened for the benefit of another.

    Like "This truck has great towing capacity, but at the expense of fuel economy."
