Explanation

With the opposite direction trigger but in fact, you can recycle the opposite of the descriptive clue much less well-known, by filling the blank with well-known. None of contingent, cogent, or insistent means well-known, so eliminate choices (C), (D), and (E).

Infamous means well-known, but in a negative way, so eliminate choice (A). Renowned means well-known, so select choice (B).

Hence option B is correct!

The answer should imply the opposite of "much less-well-known"
