Explanation

Recycle the phrase conceptual model for the first blank. Of the choices, schematic is the best fit; both epitome and quintessence can mean model, but in the sense of a perfect example of something.

The second blank describes the view, which allows the guard to observe all, so you need something that means showing everything; of the choices, only panoramic, which means offering a wide view, makes sense.

The third blank describes what’s being done to the prisoners, so recycle the clue observed. Of the choices, only scrutinized means observed.


Hence options A, E and H are correct!
