Explanation

After a long, hard practice in hot weather, naturally the players would be tired. Flagging and enervated are the only choices that mean “tired.”

Hence flagging, enervated are best fit!

another way to answer this:
look at all the options and find a pair of synonym words. There's only one pair among the choices, which is flagging and enervated.
