The correct answer is repetition and prevents.

Your questions allows for two choices so let us consider both of them.

Choice one includes the two words, repetition and prevents. Repetition means to repeat words over and over again. In sentences when one uses a word too much, the material one is writing begins to sound boring. Prevents means to stop or obstruct.

Choice two includes the words unity and keeps. Unity means togetherness, such as a bond. Keeps means to hang onto something; to hold or not to give it away.

Read the sentence out loud, plugging in each set of words.

Varying sentence patterns cuts down on repetition and prevents the audience from getting bored.

Now complete the sentence using the meaning of the words.

Varying sentence patterns cuts down on repeating words and stops the audience from getting bored.

Repeat the same action with the second set of words.

Varying sentence patterns cuts down on unity and keeps the audience from getting bored.

Varying sentence patterns cuts down on togetherness and holds the audience from getting bored.

If you look at both sentences using the method I showed you, you will find that the correct answer is repetition and prevents.
