Explanation:


In the sentence, the words “expected” and “only” imply that the data received from the spacecraft exceeded scientists’ expectations. Therefore, the words that fill the blank
should describe a reaction to results that are better than hoped for, and the choices “thrilled about” and “elated by” both express such a reaction. The scientists may well
also have been eager for, or keen on, the information, but their eagerness is not well explained by the unexpectedness of the information.
Thus, the correct answer is thrilled about (Choice C) and elated by (Choice E).
