Explanation

The clue is that Klemfuss created Secretaries’ Day, so he must have appreciated the value and significance of administrative assistants. None of proscribed, refuted, undermined, or admonished means appreciated, so eliminate choices (A), (C), (D), and (E). Although touted does not—strictly speaking—mean appreciated, a person touts only something that is appreciated, so select choice (B).


Hence option B is correct!
