Explanation

The professor was disheartened because Tom didn’t seem to care about his grade, so a word that means without care would make sense in the blank. Both gingerly and delicately are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (A) and (F).

Neither timidly, which means fearfully, nor prudently, which means cautiously, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (C) and (D). Both flippantly and thoughtlessly can mean without care, so choices (B) and (E) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.
