In the sentence the good editor must sort out excellent submission from the rest

option E, winnow which means remove from a group until only the best ones are left

and option F, which also means to examine thoroughly so as to isolate that which is most important

fits the sentences.

Explanation

A good editor is interested in distinguishing the best offerings from the worst in an efficient manner, so your word for the blank needs to mean the same thing as distinguish.

Both consolidate and integrate are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (A) and (B). Neither finagle, which means to obtain by dishonest or indirect means, nor intimate, which—as a verb—means to insinuate, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (C) and (D).

Both winnow and sift can mean separate, so choices (E) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.
