Explanation

chronically and agile

The sentence starts with the trigger word Despite to set up a contrast between the two parts of the sentence. Since the first part describes her poor physical condition and the second her surprisingly positive state, the first blank has to describe her arthritis in a negative way.

Mildly and sympathetically would not present the arthritis negatively, so the best answer is chronically. Similarly, the clue to the second blank is pleasant and it implies that the dog is positively described. Enervated means lacking energy, and acute could means perceptive, which also does not make sense here. Thus the best answers are chronically and agile.

Hence option B and E is correct!
