Explanation

Anthropologists are attempting to understand, examine, or scrutinize other societies. (Also, both objectivity and society are traps: they may be objective scientists, but their objectivity doesn’t have “subjects”; and the societies they are studying are not theirs.)

In the second blank, you are looking for something that means unintended or secondary consequences, or sequelae. The other answer choices are close in meaning to “incongruous,” and would be redundant in the sentence.

Scrutiny, sequelae.

1. The part of the sentence that is related to blank(i) is:
they risk the corruption of the sometimes fragile societies they seek to understand,

2. “seek to understand” goes well with “subjects of their scrutiny”

3. The part of the sentence that is related to blank(ii) is:
that may appear incongruous with their task.

4. “inconsistencies” and “paradoxes” do not appear incongruous but they are indeed incongruous and so can be ruled out. “sequelae” best fits the blank

5. Answer: C, D
