Explanation

Bettelheim has produced something that is thorough and well-researched concerning “Hansel and Gretel.” The first blank must then mean scholarly study. An incantation is a magical spell and relish could mean enjoyment, but neither word pertains to being scholarly. An exegesis is a critical explanation, or scholarly study, and is correct. Bettelheim’s focus is severely constricted by his narrow worldview, so it must be narrow.

Sweeping can mean vast, the opposite of what you need. A jaundiced focus is one that is affected by envy or bitterness, and there is no support for this idea in the clues. Parochial means provincial or narrow-minded, making it a solid fit for the second blank.

Hence options B and D are correct!
