Explanation

A writer who has “a predilection for focusing” on a thing makes that thing prominent in his or her work, so the answer to Blank (i) must be synonymous with “prominent” or “significant”; the answer choice that matches this meaning is “pivotal,” so it is correct. The answer to Blank (ii) must be a word that describes the subject matter of physical disease, so the correct choice is “morbid.” Thus the correct answer is a pivotal (Choice A) and morbid (Choice F).

hey can you explain me 2nd one how does subject matter is weak because it was no where mention about subject whether it is weak, obscure or uncomplicated. Just mention that subject is important for author.

He had a preference to focus on abstruse and difficult or arcane subjects.

D is the answer.

E is exactly the opposite meaning.

F means macabre which is out of scope.

Hope this helps you out.
