"Instead" indicates contrast with the idea of communicating "directly and intelligibly." The missing word has to mean "explanation," and that's what (A) elucidation means.

Can anyone explain it further please? How come elucidate is the contrast of directly?

Opposition of direct is indirect that means the told him to communicate in a direct way hence direct way is closely related to elucidate

Great logic so far, I was more sure for Vocalization as it belongs to direct speech.

Why the answer can't be Mystification? Because as instead contrasts directly and intelligibly, so the contrast is indirect i.e they are mystifying something?

The sentence asserts to speak clearly and directly BECAUSE speeches that would nOT in this inclination confuse and puzzle the people or the audience.

Mystification means to hide and confuse. The contrary of the word we fit in the blank

It is out scope

Hope this helps

Why shouldn't the answer for this be FRANK?
in the question they have specified directly and intelligibly
frank here indicates for being direct and intelligibly while option elucidation refers to clear
