Explanation

The council member’s strategy made her opponent’s attacks impossible or useless, so you need a word for the first blank that means something like made impossible. Of the choices, only precluded makes sense. The second blank is a description of the strategy in opposition to a less effective one, so a word like effective or useful would make sense. Of the choices, only pragmatic, which means practical, fits.

Hence option C and E are correct!
