Explanation

The sentence tells you that the Jedi were a powerful peace-keeping force, but there’s a contrast indicated by the but and the time trigger before the Clone Wars. That lets you know that something is going to happen that will challenge the Jedi’s status. The sentence also tells
you that every clone trooper was reprogrammed to assassinate his Jedi master. This lets you know that there was a massive attack against the Jedi. So you could fill in the missing word with something like serious injury or really bad experience.

You can eliminate choices (B) and (F) because those are going in the wrong direction. They only connect with the powerful Jedi clue, not taking into account the contrast triggers. Choices (D) and (E) have nothing to do with the sentence, so you can eliminate them. That leaves (A) and (C), both of which mean completely destroy.

Hence options A and C are correct!
