Easy

The tools of today provide not an elegant solution, which means they are less effective than those provided by old, simple yet efficacious tools.

This is in a nutshell.

Hope this helps.

But sir how did you get to this point- "The tools of today provide not an elegant solution, which means they are less effective than those provided by old, simple yet efficacious tools.", I didn't get it when I read the question, though i did sense that the two were presenting a contrast

Because you need a contrast word in line with the meaning of the sentence.

The ii bank is efficacious, so, you need a word that shows the new models are efficacious yet not elegant like the old ones.

Creditable is out of scope. We need new models that are powerful, efficacious but NOT elegant in their creation.

Hope now is really clear.

What is the clue here? I mean the tools are very good and conventional ways could have been flawed. I am unable to figure out a definite clue here.

The is not a real and conclusive clue here.

C comes from a whole grasp of the sentence. However, if you really wanna a clue is the first part of the sentence

Potentially insightful and powerful analytical tools

These two characteristics of the new models suggest you that they are already reliable (creditable) and cogent (clear and logic).

Hope this helps.

POTENTIALLY IS THE CLUE HERE
Potentially insightful tool i.e. with the capacity to develop or happen in the future.
Right now, they are ---*something negative*----
