For example, a person who has an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering, and wants to apply for a Master's in Computer Science, has not studied some of the pre-required courses for an admission in the Computer Science program. In other words, he is deficient in some of the CS courses. For this reason, he takes a few extra short to ________ his deficiency.
What word should fill in that blank?
"I took the course titled ABC from the institute XYZ in order to _____ my deficiency, as I have not studied the course AZX in my undergraduate."
