Explanation

The sentence describes Ms. de la Fressange as a businesswoman but none of the words besides “canny” and “shrewd” provide sentences that are alike in meaning. Thus the correct answer is a canny (Choice C) and a shrewd (Choice E).

No because industrious means : working energetically and devotedly; hard-working; diligent

You do need canny which means : astute; shrewd; knowing; sagacious

In this sentence you do need two words alike in meaning. Canny and industrious are different.

Hope this helps

I thought this question could be answered with two not so synonymous words like effective and creative. As she knows how to brand herself, that may indicate to her effectivity as a businesswoman also, to brand herself she might need to be creative despite her seemingly relaxed style. I get that I am wrong according to the official book but I can't find anything in the sentence that suggests that she was shrewd and canny which are ofcourse synonyms.

Scrat
