Used POE for the answer choice D since I didn't know what that means.
Macabre - something horrifying
figurative - out of scope
articulate - out of scope
contrived - fake

didn't like all the choices. So D.

Yes, you can do process of elimination, but contrapuntal has the key prefix, CONTRA, in it. Contra often means against, like opposites.

My explanation on solving this question -
The sentence 'Evoking both horror and joy' means that it puts the audience in an ambivalent position (Mixed feelings), the blank is before the word 'technique' meaning that we have to select the adjective for the technique -
Options 1 -
macabre - I knew means gruesome. (N/A)
figurative - Metaphoric (Does not make sense)
articulate - Means fluent and comprehensible (Which is the opposite)
contrapuntal - Do not know what that means
contrived - Remorseful

Since none of the words I know can be plugged in here, right answer is contrapuntal.
