Explanation

You’ve been told that there is a “discrepancy” or mismatch between Mozart’s fame and his financial situation, so whatever happened to one did not happen to the other. The clue “beyond measure” tells you that his musical star must have grown, so waxed is the only possibility for the first blank.

That means Mozart’s income must have either gone down, remained low or barely stirred, which is the correct answer for the second blank. It
could not be the case that his income “grew exponentially” or “remained exorbitant,” or there would be no “discrepancy.”

Waxed, barely stirred.
