He rarely bothered to revise/make changes in his lengthy tomes, but their surprising popularity with the public empowered him to avoid editorial complaints through abrupt or peremptory threats to sign a contract with a different publisher. Revise or make changes is to emend, so fits in the first blank.

Allay means to reduce or lessen something.
Edify is to teach or instruct.
Impuissant means ineffective or powerless and toothsome is related to tempting taste and attractiveness.

I find it difficult to solve it within 90 secs and ended up wrongly. So I am scared that i am not doing well in medium level questions.
thoughts?

Something strong you need to confirm and reinforce the red word.

E fits the ballpark.
