Explanation

The adjective “seemingly” indicates that the words that fill the blank will contrast with “fascinating.” Of the responses, “banal” and “insipid” are both opposites of “fascinating,” and they yield sentences alike in meaning, so they are the correct response. While “provocative” and “stimulating” are near in meaning, they do not provide any contrast to “fascinating,” so they are incorrect. Neither of the other responses has a near synonym among the choices, nor do they provide any opposition to the characterization of the passport as a fascinating topic.Thus the correct answer is banal (Choice Β) and insipid (Choice E).

Something that enables to someone to achieve something else. It is a figurative sense here. Not properly the document you do need to take a trip around the globe.
