Explanation

Although the fact that the ballerina didn’t achieve a coveted title might suggest she wasn’t a good dancer, the change-direction trigger—at least in the opinion of the general public—indicates that the word in the blank needs to mean something like skillful.

Both fulsome and noisome are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (D) and (E). Neither perfunctory, which means careless, nor evanescent, which means fleeting, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (A) and (B). Both consummate and
virtuoso can mean extremely skilled, so choices (C) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence options C and F are correct!
