Here is a sentence from my homework at school:
" If the size of the work force can be easily and rapidly altered, .........market fluctuations profits will be maximized ."
a. in terms of b. in response to c.in reply to d. with respect to
I chose "in reply to" but I am not sure!
I think they just feel the same and also go with NOUN?;)

    Are you sure there's a comma after "altered" in the original?

    I would expect this:
    "If the size of the work force can be easily and rapidly altered in response to market fluctuations, profits will be maximized."
