Explanation


In this example, both blanks can be filled by focusing on the statement that Crawford agonized over the details in her representations of folk music performances. The only choice for blank (ii) that matches this description is “fastidiousness”; neither “didacticism” nor “iconoclasm” reflects the notion of agonizing over details. Similarly, only “reverence for” fits in Blank (i), since neither “detachment from” nor “curiosity about” reflects the degree of care Crawford took.
Thus the correct answer is reverence for (Choice A) and fastidiousness (Choice D).

C is a too weak word for the first blank.

Ruth Crawford not only brought a composer’s acumen ( a very smart approach ) to the notation of folk music but also handle it with the right reverence

Ask for further assistance.
