Solution

The correct option is A However, when the veil is lifted, we commonly see that diplomacy is understood as a disguise for the rule of force.
Option: (b)

Going with the flow of the passage, the last line states that now all players "profess" to seek only peace. "Profess" means to mask or to pretend. Thus, option (b) which talks about the veil being lifted is the most logical completion of the passage.
