the effort they evince

Hallo,

Can anyone please tell me if the word "evince" is an idiomatic verb for the noun effort.

"In contrast to socialism, capitalism enables people to experience a direct relationship
between the effort they evince and the results/reward they receive."


Or would it be better to write:
- the effort they make
- the effort they show
- the effort they [else]
?

Thanks.

    "Evince" does not seem appropriate here. "Evince" concerns appearances, whereas the sentence appears to be talking about a link between the effort people know they have put into something and the reward they receive, whether the effort is evident to others or not.
