Explanation

The structure of the sentence and the use of the word even provide that the ancient text, while not entirely impenetrable to experts, was nonetheless quite unclear. Thus, find two answers that mean quite unclear.

Choices (A) and (C) work well. Choices (B), (D), and (E) provide the opposite meaning; while the experts may not be as confused as the laypeople, they
do struggle with the meaning. Choice (F), despite its resemblance in sound to choice (A), has a completely different meaning.

Hence optopns A and C are correct!
