    Hello

    I want to share a test question which I couldn't answer correctly.

    Some politicians worry ----such a dramatic economic downturn could have severe implications for relations between different ethnic groups of the country.

    a-that
    b-what
    c-which
    d-however
    e-whatever

    Re: Hello

    For d to be correct, there would have to be a full stop after 'worry' and 'However' would have to begin with a capital letter. Even so, it wouldn't make much sense.

    Re: Hello

    The only way it makes sense with "however" would be with an implied "that."

    Re: Hello

    The reason is that the test book was wrong.

    I think it's a mistake in the book too. You'd need to change things quite a bit to get however to work.
