Blank (i)
a complicated

a distorted
an amorphous
an illusory

Kudos for the right answer and explanation

Because the idea here is that they are phenomena "apparently" intricated = complicated.

But once we do understand the underlined assumption maybe they are not so complicated.

Convoluted means twisted but not necessarily what is twisted into form is complicated.
