Take another look at the sentence:

Given 1,000 dollars as a graduation gift, Kris wavered between putting the money toward a new computer or going to Germany to visit his sister, finally Fräuleins and beer won out over modems and megabytes.

Putting money toward a new computer is one item in a series of two. Going to Germany to visit his sister is the second item in the series. When you have only two items in a series, you need only a coordinating conjunction like or to connect them.

Go back to the sentence to try again.
