Explanation

The trigger while indicates that the admirers do the opposite of the others, who disparage it, so something like praise would make sense in the blank. Both defame and underrate are nearly the opposite of what you’re looking for, so eliminate choices (A) and (E).

Choices (B) and (C) give roughly synonymous meanings, but aren’t supported by the sentence. Both commend and extol can mean praise, so choices (D) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence options D and F is correct!
