    The answer is 2. To abate means to decrease or subside.

    4. is eliminated because if digital acceleration is the new characteristic among corporations, demand for digital solutions cannot dip.

    1. and 3. do not fit as they incorporate a paradox- if there has been a spurt or growth in demand, the author wouldn’t mention signs of it intensifying or sharpening again.
