Explanation


The sentence tells us that there is a contrast between the way Simpson related to politics in his college years and how he related to politics later in life. So the choices that complete the blanks must contrast with each other. The part of the sentence beginning with “despite” indicates that Simpson’s relation to politics in his college years did not involve engagement in the political activity that was “rife.” Of the choices for Blank (ii), only “indifferent to” conveys that non-engagement. And of the choices for Blank (i), only “activism” supplies the required contrast with “indifferent to.”
Thus the correct answer is activism (Choice A) and indifferent to (Choice E).
