I am just curious, why can't we use sophistry for the 2nd blank. It seems that the the sophistry could also cause a betrayal of trust.

Quote:
Start with the second blank, which must mean something close to an act of treachery. Perfidy means this. Since his contemporaries believed Kazan had committed treachery, they would have “harshly criticized” him, so the first blank means rebuked. For the last blank, he was able to achieve atonement, which is what expiate means.
