Question:

The actors’ performances powerfully ________ the audience.
Which of the following options correctly completes the sentence above?

A affected
Explaination

Effected means "executed, produced, or brought about." Affected means "made an impact on." It is the past tense of the verb form of affect, which means "to impact." Answer "affected" is preferable to answer "were affecting" , which is far too wordy.
