Why not support and predominant ? Why not underscore and predominant ? The two movements were predominant that time right ? and supports that assertion ?

Hi Barun. There isn't a necessary logical relationship between these activists' working energetically and the movements' predominance. Maybe this was a just a very small group of activists. Were the movements predominant? You could say they were, but the fact that a group of activists worked in both does not mean the movements were predominant.
