Because is the only other synonym to rarefied.

Quite straight.

Hope this helps.

Are we to select only one word or two? 'Meager' seems odd - it wouldn't give details on how the surface of Mars is discernible; while rarefied is closer in terms of its connotations in translucency.

You must pick two answer choices where is indicated.

The two words are synonyms, therefore they are correct.

Meager means Deficient in amount,or scanty or paltry. I cant understand how Meager is synonymous to "rarefied'!!

Meager also means: poorly or lacking. Indeed, similar to rarefied.

Hope now is clear.
