Explanation

The man’s response to visitors was that he shooed them away, so you need a word that means something like not social. Both garrulous and affable are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (E) and (F).

Neither sarcastic nor chauvinistic is supported in the sentence, so eliminate choices (C) and (D). Both misanthropic and curmudgeonly can mean not social, so choices (A) and (B) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence options A and B are correct!
