Analogy questions are often annoying, but we should always start with the passage. In the passage, we take an idea from a different discipline, economics, and apply that to our discipline to show that two things we thought were in conflict are actually approaching the same idea.

I don't love the idea of diverging and parallel lines, but it is closer to the idea of showing things are not actually in conflict than any of the other answer choices.
