Explanation

Each blank is associated with the opposite direction trigger or.
For the first blank, the clue veritable requires a word that means untrue. Of the choices, only apocryphal makes sense.

For the second blank, the clue mettle requires a word that means cowardly. Of the choices, pusillanimous is the best fit. For the third blank, the clue guile requires a word meaning something such as guileless. Of the choices, only ingenuous means guileless.

Hence options C, D and H are corrct!

The word given in options for the second blank is "ingenious", not "ingenuous", pls edit that.
