Explanation

You need two words that are like pragmatic, which means “practical.” Feasible and viable relate to the practical considerations of whether the plan is workable or likely to succeed.

The only other pair of similar words, partisan and prejudiced, have the exact incorrect meaning — they are more similar to “ideological”
than “pragmatic.”

Hence feasible, viable are best fit!

Voluble - talking with ease. Works for a politician but irrelevant to question.
