Explanation

For the first blank, you need a word that explains what happened during production. Audrey Hepburn almost refused the part and the director had to make several compromises, so a word like problems would make sense. Of the choices, only complications fits.

The second blank describes what Hepburn feared would happen to her image; if she nearly turned down the part because her image was pristine, she didn’t want to hurt her image. Of the choices, only tarnish can mean hurt.

The last blank describes why the director made compromises for the censors: to make them happy. Of the choices, only assuage makes sense.

Hence options A, E and G are correct!
