Explanation

If Natalie was nervous about receiving an unpleasant lecture but her fears were easily relieved, then the policeman must have been the opposite of unpleasant. So you are looking for words that means pleasant or friendly. Exacting and stringent mean meticulously demanding, and so you can eliminate choice (A) and choice (D).

Affable and genial can both mean friendly, and are the best answers. Atypical means nonconforming, which does not retain the meaning of the sentence. Sober can means calm; though the policeman may have also been calm, you’re looking for words that mean pleasant or friendly. Furthermore, sober does not have a synonym amongst the other answer choices.

Hence otions B and F are the best fits!
