Arms control, a term popularized in the early 1960s, refers to the voluntary limitation or reduction of weapons and their means of delivery, between and among countries, through negotiation. It is distinct from disarmament, which seeks to eliminate, also by international agreement, the means by which countries wage war. The goal of eliminating war goes far back in history, but in modern times disarmament came into focus with the Hague Conferences in 1899 and 1907. These and subsequent efforts met with only modest success. (6) As defined by academic specialists, the three objectives of arms control are to reduce the likelihood of war, to limit the extent of damage should war occur, and to reduce expenditures on military forces. While arms control compiled a mixed record during the post-World War II era, seldom meeting the ambitious goals set forth by its numerous proponents. The collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of the cold war have opened up promising new opportunities for radical reductions in the nuclear and conventional weapons arsenals of the major powers. (15)Arms control, particularly between the superpowers, aroused controversy from the outset. The Limited Test Ban Treaty, signed by representatives of the United States, United Kingdom, and Soviet Union in 1963, provoked sharp debate when U.S. President John F. Kennedy submitted this arms-control "first" for Senate approval. The treaty, which prohibits testing nuclear weapons above ground, under water, and in space, was seen by some critics asunenforceable. These and other criticisms notwithstanding, the treaty (18) was eventually ratified and fears of Soviet noncompliance proved unfounded. Mark the best choice         1.   What does provoke (Line 15) mean?
