Explanation

The word whereas sets up a contrast with dense and abstruse (the latter of which means “difficult to understand”), so you need a word that means something like “clarity.” Sagacity and prowess both imply skill, but you need something that also implies a kind of simplicity. Limpidity and lucidity fit the bill perfectly.

Hence options limpidity, lucidity are correct!
