Explanation



The last part of the sentence provides most of the context needed to fill in the two blanks. The novel was extremely long and required vast amounts of paper. Among the choices for the second blank, only “profligate” matches this lack of restraint. The word“Ironically” indicates that what the writer was “wary of” was something similar toprofligacy; of the choices for the first blank, “extravagance” is the closest.

Thus, the correct answer is extravagance (Choice B) and profligate (Choice F).
