    Choice B – Supremacy
    As used in line 53, “dominion” most nearly means supremacy.
    In the first paragraph of Passage 2, when discussing changing social relations, Mill writes that in her time there was “a just equality, instead of the supremacy of the strongest.” In this context of a society where some once had much more power than others, the word “dominion” almost means superiority or greater power.
    Choices A, C, and D are incorrect because, in the context of a paragraph discussing differences in the amount of power members of a society have, “dominion” means dominion or greater power, not omnipotence or the state of being all-powerful (choice A), possession ( choice C) or territory (choice D).
