It should be A and D, I think. But I'm confused about this one. There is meant to be a contrast between the first part of the sentence and the second. So the word we are looking for is "not as detailed", right? If so why cannot laconic work? I mean it doesn't make sense when you look at the sentence as a whole but using the logic I've learnt from sentence shifts in Magoosh lectures it seems like laconic could work, no?

We are looking for a word similar to implicit. As in, something which is understood but not written down. Laconic is a bad fit for that

Explanation

The sentence contrasts the rules of etiquette with the detailed written regulations regarding play, so you need something like vague or unwritten for the blank. Both express and manifest are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (C) and (F).

Be careful about laconic: It means using few words, but not unspoken, so eliminate choice (B).

Reclusive, which means withdrawn from society, doesn’t make sense in the blank, so eliminate choice (E). Both implicit and tacit can mean unwritten, so choices (A) and (D) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence options A and D is correct!
