finicky:choosy
obdurate: stubborn
vituperative: abusive
capitulate: give in
dissent: disagreement, disapproval
repudiate: reject; turn one's back on

In the first blank we need a synonym of "stubborn", which is "obdurate". In the second one, we need a verb meaning "yielding to superior strength", which is "capitulate".

B & D
