Explanation

The words unpopular and preferred act as opposite-direction triggers. The clues roundabout and loquaciousness require that the blank mean something like briefness. None of enlargement, garrulousness, gregariousness, or perspicacity means brevity, so eliminate choices (B), (C), (D), and (E). Succinctness does mean brevity, so select choice (A).

Hence option A is correct.
