Explanation

Starting from what we do know
Quote:
Cynic is a person who believes that only selfishness motivates human actions and who disbelieves in or minimizes selfless acts or disinterested points of view.

As such, cynics believe that other people deflect and shrug off the compliments to gain even more attention. Could be true this or not is what they beleieve.

C and E are the right answers.
