Stentorian and vociferous are related to loud and noisy voice. Garrulous is excessive talkative. Expository means explanatory. Any of these are not in line with the sentence meaning.

Answers : Felicitous and Poignant

I don't understand how felicitious and poignant are synonyms. I looked them up on a dictionary and they don't sound similar.

The only way to explain these two words is that: felicitous means happy (indeed in her speech) and poignant means emotional.

It is the only way to explain these two answers, otherwise, the two words are rather the opposite.

I agree.
