Explanation

pecuniary and panacea

For the first blank, the information regarding the type of resources that were expended are the clues financial albatross and bankrupted. Thus, the first blank must mean something like financial. Assiduous and wholesome do not mean financial; pecuniary does.

For the second blank, you learn that the drug is supposed to be used to treat numerous physical and mental ailments. Thus, the second blank must mean something like cure-all. Sinecure and mendicant do not mean cure-all, but panacea does. Thus, select pecuniary and panacea.

Hence option B and F are correct!
