Explanation

Recycle the clue angry response into the blank. Three of your choices—laudation, panegyric, and approbation—are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (A), (C), and (D). A dictum is a formal or authoritative statement; that’s not supported by the
sentence, so eliminate choice (B). Both invective and vituperation can mean a speech of anger, so choices (E) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence E and F are correct!
