Explanation

The attempt by certain scholars to make their own work central is contrasted to the way they treat the work of others. The blank, then, must be completed with a pairing whose meaning is the opposite of central. Of the choices, “orthodox,” “mainstream,” and “definitive” are all too close in meaning to “central” to provide the necessary contrast; therefore they are incorrect. “Conditional” suggests a status that is yet to be determined, a nuance unsupported by anything else in the sentence; therefore it is also incorrect. The two remaining answers, “marginal” and “peripheral,” are synonyms with meanings that contrast nicely with “central.” Thus the correct answer is marginal (Choice B) and peripheral (Choice F).

'Relegate' is the key word here. As some writers make their own work central they 'relegate' others' to a position that is not so central. Marginal and peripheral both mean something those are quite opposite of central and thus the answer we are looking for in this question.

Though I didn't catch the meaning of the word "relagate" for this question, it kindly gives another clue right before, "make their own labors central", and I could solve the question properly. Maybe that's why it's in the easy category.
