Explanation

The first blank refers to what Jill doesn’t have, so you need a word that means politeness. Of the choices, only tact fits. The second blank refers to what Jill does without meaning to, so you need a word that means insulting. Of the choices, only denigrating means insulting.

Hence option B and F are correct!

Anyone please mention why deference is wrong?
