Explanation

The clue for the first blank is most of their activities during the day, and so that blank must describe such a pattern. Quotidian means common and circadian patterns occur once per day, but not specifically during the daytime. Diurnal is the best fit because it means during the daytime. The second blank needs to be consistent with the clue desire for company.Collaborative means enjoys working with others but not a desire for company, but a gregarious creature is quite social and seeks out company. Egregious means extremely bad, and does not match.

The third blank must also describe something like company. Litheness means grace and flexibility and fatuity means idiotic, and neither one truly refers to having company. Camaraderie means trusting friendship, which is the most like company and makes it the best answer.

Hence options C, E and I are correct!
