Explanation

The sentence implies that the public and the art critics had similar negative reactions to the modern art exhibits; the words “vituperation” and “disgust” further suggest that this reaction was very intense. Thus answers to both Blank (i) and Blank (ii) must be synonymous with “strong negative reaction.” The only combination of the answer choices that matches this meaning is “aghast” and “shock,” so this answer is correct. Thus the correct answer is aghast (Choice A) and shock (Choice D).

pretty straightforward. By the way, can anyone suggest the webmaster for us users to be able to hide the statistics in the GRE Timer? Showing the stat kinda impact on solving the question.

I assume the timer is used to measure how hard the question is, so that it can be classified later on

Unsurpirsed and apathy make a nice pair, but then we know they expressed disgust by stooping to vituperation. Therefore, the words should indicate strong negative feelings, therefore aghast and shock are the best choices.
