Explanation

The missing word must be consistent with the clues no new ideas and containing nothing but overt drivel. Lax and amorphous both mean without precision or structure; they’re consistent with the end of the sentence, but not with this clue.

Natty means neat and tidy, usually in reference to clothing, and does not reflect the clue. Labyrinthine means unnecessarily complicated, but the problem with the poetry is lack of freshness. Platitudinous and jejune both mean trite or uninteresting and produces equivalent, appropriate sentences.

Hence options A and C is correct!
