No Arc29, Despair is the right choice for the second blank since clarissa fell silently in a state of anguish but the Bevy is puzzling me. I think for the first blank the right answer is Quota

I got this correct.

Faced with something short of choices , Clarrisa fell silent for something.

Minuscule means tiny not relevant.
Quota means some fixed number
Bevy means similars things in large quantinty. I felt that Bevy suits here since quota doesn't make sense.

Contemplate means something we should consider before we act..not suitable
Reverie means daydream.
Despair means kind of some pain..suits better.
